Quickly create edible lace to decorate cakes for all occasions using the Flexique Instant Lace Mix.
Flexique Instant Lace is the quickest way to create flexible lace for your cakes. There’s no mixing or baking required, simply heat for 15 seconds, pour, and leave to cure for 5minutes and you’ve got edible lace ready to decorate your cakes!
The lace is incredibly simple to make and can be used in all edible lace mats and moulds including Cake Lace mats.
The lace is also reusable, so if you want to reuse lace from a previous cake or have made a mistake and want to try it again, then no problem! Just reheat and use again.
Flexique lace is stretchy, much like the original Flexique, ensuring minimal tears or breakages.
Flexique Instant Lace is also extremely versatile. Try pouring it over a transfer sheet and leaving to dry. Once set, you will have the transfer on your piece of edible lace, or why not pour into a mould to create 3D flowers? Flexique Instant Lace provides endless possibilities.
How to use:
1. Pour into a microwave safe container or using the pot that the product comes in, heat in the microwave for 15 seconds and stir.
2. Repeat the process until fully liquid. Do not overheat as boiling the liquid may cause it to overflow. If heating a smaller quantity it is recommended to heat in shorter bursts.
3. Pour the liquid lace over your cake lace mat or mould, spreading evenly with a pallet or spreading knife and wipe off any excess.
4. Place in the fridge or freezer and check every 5 minutes until it is dry. Alternatively you can air dry it which will take approximately 15 minutes depending on the temperature and humidity of the room.
Flexique Instant Lace is clear and translucent so add white, or whichever colour you choose, to make the lace opaque. To colour, simply add a few drops of liquid or gel colouring to the Instant Lace once it has been heated and stir thoroughly.
You can also add lustre dust whilst the lace is in liquid form for an added shine, or dust on once the lace is in a solid form but still tacky.
To attach the lace to your cake, use Flexique Edible Glue.
Store in a cool dry place.
To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.
Our couriers tell us that they are experiencing very large delivery volumes (akin to Black Friday levels) as everyone is now restricted to shopping online.
This means you should expect around 48 hours added to standard delivery times.
90 - 98% of Next Day deliveries are arriving on time.
Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
