Cake Lace

Who remembers the squiggly ornament? This is the cake technique that inspires it.

It is so simple and such a great way to cover up flaws or add a little pizzazz to the side of a cake.

All you need is your decorator icing in a bag with a writing tip on it.  Apply even pressure so that you get a consistent line.  You want the line to be continuous and only to terminate down near the piping.  The middle needs to be a solid line.

The great thing about it is you can make it loose or tight and you will still get pretty good results.  I prefer a tighter technique with smaller designs, but I have seen it done a variety of ways.  Once you get into a rhythm it is easy to accomplish.  Practice on a plate or similar to get used to the technique and get a feel for what works best for you!

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
