I covered the cakes in fondant then placed a piece of lace material on the cake (once the fondant set a bit). Then I "iced" the lace in royal icing using my icing spatula; then I gently peeled off the lace to reveal the pattern on the fondant. I piped the outlines of the flowers, etc. to give it depth. Note: I iced the tops of the cakes first then I took a separate piece of lace and wrapped it around the sides to ice, otherwise you'd end up with folds on the sides.
Wow! Very pretty cake and so much detail! Great Job!
wow, that is just really pretty! How did you do this, brush embroidery?
It's not brushed embroidery. Sorry... I just added my "how-to" above.
Thank you, BTW.
really neat idea!
What a great idea! I'll have to try it!
