Sugarveil lace with a stencil
Cake Central Top Picks
Also, you can use a parchment cone and pipe lace designs by tracing these lace patterns onto greased parchment: http://www.sugarveil.com/icing_dispenser/design_patterns.htm
Do let me know if I can answer any questions for you.
jjt, specifically for stenciling, I like to beat SugarVeil with a whisk attachment when mixing to give it lots of 'loft'. And spreading it thickly onto the stencil means spreading it to cover the stencil, leaving the excess there rather than scraping it off (you can scrape the stencil after it's removed to reclaim the SugarVeil). After a few minutes, you roll the stencil back very slowly, and the SugarVeil will 'grab' itself, making really soft, sculpted-looking edges to the stenciled design (rather than the straight-walled edges you get when stenciling with royal icing). You can use any type of thin, plastic card - or even a clean credit card - to stencil.
It's a good way to do monograms. These were stenciled, and to add even more dimension, we used the Icing Dispenser to apply more SugarVeil in the middle areas of the letters.
