Nancy, I have an old Wilton book called Beautiful Bridal Cakes “The Wilton Way.” In it, it has a cake that has antique lace going over the sides of the cake, and says to use an antique net nail. I have looked all over the internet for this, do you know where it can be found; or how to do the lace draping over the side of the cake? I would be happy to forward a picture of the cake. It is gorgeous and I would love to make it for my niece's wedding. Thank you for any help you may provide.

That is a beautiful and intricate design! These kinds of techniques are becoming more and rarer, and so are the items used to make them. The Wilton School of Cake Decorating & Confectionery Art offers a Lambeth & Australian Methods course this summer that helps teaches detailed piping techniques. You can find more information about the course offered at The Wilton School here.
