It’s Friday and we have a fabulous new tutorial for you! It’s a follow up to yesterday’s Alencon Lace Cake and let’s just say that it’s more than a little dreamy. Robin Martin, owner of Gateaux Inc., is sharing the secrets behind her incredible lace in a full step-by-step tutorial. Her approach (and line of cake stencils and silk screens) is pure genius and will have you creating gorgeous lace detailing with less time and headache. No more hand tracing lace patterns on to a cake! It starts with her custom clear acrylic stencil of the lace pattern, a bowl of royal icing, and breezes on from there. Add some overpiping to accentuate the edges and you have spectacular lace! If you don’t believe it can be that easy, take a look for yourself! Create stunning lace with this Stenciled Lace Tutorial!
