I'd be looking at making a blackest lace or orange, so if you've tried them, are they easy to color? (I know Cake Lace has a ore-made black)
this cake I did with Crystal Lace, it was super easy. The lace dried quite fast in my oven, about 40min per sheet and stayed pliable for 3 days. I added the silver dust to the mat before spreading the lace, but a friend coloured hers 1st and then used it with very good results. It doesn't really taste like anything, maybe similar to gum paste?
