Hi, What do you call the lacy looking squiggle on cakes. I've heard it's one continuous thread of icing. I'm interested in learning it. Is there a how to page here someplace?
Thanks in advance!
I am not sure how to do it but i think it is called cornelli lace.
cakeconfections is right...it sounds like cornelli lace. I'v done this a couple times. I used a 3 tip but you can use a smaller size if you want it more delicate. Then you pipe one continous line that never crosses or touches itself...looks like your making loose R's or S'. Here a link to Wilton's directions
There's two different kinds. The one that is easier because it is just squiggly and touches itself is called Sotas
The one that is more detailed, being one continuous line that does not touch itself, does not cross over itself, and does not break is called cornelli
Thanks so much for the quick response!! I knew I could count on you!! This is the greatest place. I'll go check that out now and just may use it later today. I'm itchin to make a just because cake.
