Servings and Preparation Time

Tips and Tricks

Store any leftover edible sugar lace in between layers of parchment paper in an airtight box. Be sure to avoid leaving the mixture out, as it can become brittle and stale.

When properly stored, the edible sugar lace can keep for a few months. Be certain to avoid keeping it in direct sunlight, as this will cause it to melt. In addition, do not keep it in the fridge as it may dry out, leading it to become brittle.

If you accidentally overbake your edible sugar lace, place it in a zip lock bag with a damp paper towel for a few minutes. Do not actually let the lace touch the damp towel. This will help the elasticity return to the lace, making it easier to work with.

Tips and Tricks for Sugar Lace Mixture

There are many different lace mats you can purchase. It is best to purchase thinner mats, as thicker ones can be harder to work with. However, the level of thickness is all up to you.

Use a sharp knife to trim any excess off the edible sugar lace. This will allow you to easily get just the right size to put on your cake.

Your lace mat should be washed with water and mild dish soap. It is best to wash them by hand, as they are delicate.

Edible lace can go on cakes decorated with buttercream and fondant as well. The clear piping gel will help keep the lace in place on your cakes.
