I tried using Cake Lace for a cake I'm doing this weekend. I've done it before with homemade lace, and it worked well. This time I decided to try Claire Bowman's. Well, it's so soft and every time I try to move it, it folds in on itself and sticks to itself, and I'm stuck taking it apart and laying it out flat. It's very humid here (Florida), so that may be the culprit.

So, my question is, what can I do to harden it and make it more workable? I was thinking either putting it in the fridge before attaching it to the cake. Or maybe popping it back in the over for a few more minutes. Any suggestions would be awesome.

I live in Ms and have the same humid weather. What works for me is to dust the lace before and after removing from the mat with cornstarch.  It works great.
