When used in conjunction with the Fantasy Flowers mat, you will have the benefit of access to two different flowers and leaves patterns.
It is imperative that you used pearlised, pre-mixed Cake Lace with this mat in order to achieve free standing flowers; view the Cake Lace Facebook Page to truly appreciate why.
You can attach Cake Lace using a little water on your sugarpaste, or for effortless application use a broad tip water brush.
The Florence Flower Cake Lace Mat can also be used as an impression mat.
Mat measures approx. W: 11.73" x L: 15.5" (30cm x 40cm)
Cake Lace is so easy to use - simply make to the manufacturers instructions, spreading onto the mat and placing in the oven at 80°C. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, take out of the oven and cool for five minutes; your Cake Lace is now ready to use! From start to finish your Cake Lace could be ready to use in less than 30 minutes.
The beauty of Cake Lace, once it has been made, is that it will stay moist and pliable for many months to allow you to create masterpieces that may take a period of time.
Q: When colouring the Cake Lace do I need to do anything else?
A: We advise dropping the baking temperature by 5-10° and putting the Cake Lace in the oven for a total of 20-25 minutes. Please be aware that all ovens are different, so timings and temperatures are estimated.
Q: How do I store ready made Cake Lace?
A: We recommend placing Cake Lace in parchment paper that has been lightly dusted with cornflour, and storing in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Q: Can Cake Lace be applied to vanilla buttercream, ganache or swiss meringue buttercream?
A: Cake Lace can be applied to ganache and swiss meringue buttercream, however, we do not recommend applying Cake Lace to buttercream as this stays soft.
To use 100g of pre-mixed Cake Lace:
1. Preheat your oven to 70-80°C.
2. Spread your Cake Lace mix onto the mat using the Cake Lace Spreading Knife. Work the mix in all directions to ensure there is even coverage.
3. Remove any excess with the knife.
4. Place into your pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes to dry your Cake Lace.
5. Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes for the Cake Lace to cool.
6. Check that the Cake Lace is ready by peeling the edge of the Cake Lace from the mat. It should release easily. If it does not, the Cake Lace is not dry, so place it back in the oven for another two minutes, and test again.
7. Place the dried Cake Lace face down onto a clean surface and using the knife, release it from the mat.
8. To fix the Cake Lace onto your cake or cupcakes, paint a small amount of edible glue onto the back of the Cake Lace and press it gently onto the cake. Alternatively, if you are not ready to use the Cake Lace, wrap it in greaseproof paper until you are ready to use it.
A small amount of Part B liquid will be left over; this can optionally be added to create a softer lace.
Cake Lace will remain pliable for many months, so transporting your cakes will be a breeze.
We recommend storing the finished Cake Lace in some greaseproof paper, wrapped closely. Then, wrap that in foil, and store away from strong lights and odours.
We are open and operating as usual, but please be aware there may be delivery delays due to couriers' exceptionally high volumes.
