How to make edible lace for cake decorating? In this tutorial, you are going to learn how to use wafer paper to create beautiful modern lace for wedding cakes and bespoke designs.

Learn my easy technique and tips and tricks on how to make wafer paper lace flexible and arrange cake decorations on a cake.
You will need:

- The Sugar Art Brilliant Sparkle
๐Ÿ‘‰ Nonstick pan (clean and dry)

๐Ÿ‘‰ Mini steamer (optional, but helps with softening and reshaping wafer paper lace)
