here are some lace borders that can be used for the sides of the laced ribbon http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.sugarcraft.com/catalog/gumpaste/44-1010.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.sugarcraft.com/catalog/gumpaste/beads.htm&h=177&w=250&sz=15&hl=en&start=3&um=1&tbnid=Ipy3bLQmg4yjWM:&tbnh=79&tbnw=111&prev=/images%3Fq%3D%2Bsite:www.sugarcraft.com%2Bfondant%2Blace%2Bborder%2B%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den

gumpaste is a good idea. i would think though that you could use smaller separate pieces for each criss cross and attach them to the hole with glue, and just give the appearance of one long strand. that would be really difficult to get them laced up without breaking or cracking from drying out. just a thought. ???

Not it you do it quickly.. and the cording will be thicker than say hair.. so you'll have more play time.. you could also use fondant with some tylose added to it or a 70:30 mix of gumpaste and fondant. Straight fondant will stretch and break off though.

Good idea on the sports ball pan turned upside down, also I think the side things to the corset are those cutters ( I have them) from www.globalsugarart.com the V shaped from FMM Green set I believe. I have yet to try the gun thing. Love your ideas everyone!!!!!

Thought this how-to might be helpful if you use SugarVeil to create the corset,:

Smooth prepared SugarVeil (mix 1c. SugarVeil to 1/3c. plus two Tbl. boiling water and color a chocolate color) into a solid sheet. When the sheet is âsetâ, use decorative scissors to cut the patterned edge of the vertical corset strips, and a paper punch to make the holes. Attach (using a tiny bit of moisture on a fingertip if necessary) the straight edge of the corset strip to the fondant cake, leaving the patterned edge to dimensionally stand a bit away from the fondant surface. For the laces, comb lines into a portion of the chocolate-color SugarVeil using the âwide linesâ edge of the SugarVeil Confectionery Comb [Note: For the smoothest of lace lines, refrigerate SugarVeil about 30 min. before combing]. When âsetâ, apply the laces in sections, attaching the âunderâ laces (again with a tiny bit of moisture) to the underside of the corset strip, and allowing the âoverâ laces to actually go thru the holes, attaching invisibly on the underside of the corset strip. Tie one of the laces into a bow and attach separately, knotting the ends of the laces if desired. The monogram can be stenciled onto a sheet of white SugarVeil, and the other details on the cake can be piped directly onto the cake using a parchment cone.
