Lattice

Reminiscent of garden themes, lattice can cover garland sections, imprinted areas, even entire sides of cake with spectacular results. Vary your tip selections for different looks--try round, star or basketweave tips.

Steps:

Step 1:

Fit the decorating bag with tip 2 and fill 1/2 full with Stiff Icing thinned with corn syrup. Hold the decorating bag 45° at 4:30 (7:30 for left-handers), the tip should be slightly above surface. Outline the shape to be covered.

Step 2:

Starting in the center of the outlined shape, pipe tip 2 diagonal strings to the right, attached to outline.

Step 3:

From the opposite side, pipe diagonal strings in the other direction, covering the area.
