My Cornelli Lace looks very bad. Is there a trick to improving my technique?

I’m guessing you’re being hard on yourself, and your Cornelli lace looks much better than you think. But cake decorating requires practice! A good way to do this is to cover a cake board with waxed paper and repeat your techniques on the board. Over time, you will see the decorations look crisper and more “professional.”
