I'm making a tea party cake and I'd like the tablecloth to have some lace trim. Any tips? I don't want it too overdone, just some detail.
Thanks! icon_smile.gif

i was reading one of the wilton weddings books last night and i actually saw where they took a piece of fondant and covered it with a scrap of real lace. they then spread icing on top of the lace and gently peeled it off. the lace pattern was transferred to the fondant with icing icon_smile.gif it looked pretty too.

another idea is to make a panel of fondant and make eyelet lace: take a small round tip and "punch" holes into one edge of the fondant. then take some icing and outline the hole and add additional lace-like edging to jazz it up.

I'm sure someone else will be able to give more/better advice. Good luck! icon_smile.gif
