Cornelli Lace

The perfect look for formal presentations, such as wedding and anniversary cakes. The precise, lacy design of this freehand technique depends on the continuous curving strings that do not overlap or touch.


Step 1:

Fit the decorating bag with tip 1 and fill 1/2 full with thin consistency icing. Hold the bag and tip slightly at 90° angle, close to cake without scraping cake with tip and without flattening icing strings.

Step 2:

Beginning and ending at edges, pipe a continuous string of icing—curve it up, down and around until area is covered. Make certain strings never touch or cross. Don't leave any loose ends! Stop pressure, pull tip away.
