I have not made wings with cake lace, Andrea, but I have several times with gum paste, using a frame of wire. I see no reason why you couldn’t do the same with cake lace and I think they will be beautiful. You might need to twiddle a small amount of fondant or gum paste onto your wires so the lace will stick.

Thanks Sandra ,yes, I was planning on two sheets stuck together ,with the wires in between with a bit of twiddled saracino on the wires to help the structure x

Sandra Smiley ...

Sounds like a good plan. Let us know how it works out. Good luck!

Sandra Smiley ...

Aww, that’s sweet! Some of my favorite pieces were for my husband.

Andrea ...

You make them with love I think. Although a little piece of me goes into everything I do, I am a bit quirky but that’s art isn’t it x

Sandra Smiley ...

Lol, sure it is, Andrea! Artists of all mediums are jus a little different than others, ha!
