Do you have a tutorial? Those flowers are beautiful!

 

Thank you! I do not have a tutorial, but I can tell you that I used a Wilton #101 tip and piped the same way that an apple blossom flower is piped. I used a relatively stiff icing - much stiffer than what is seen in most tutorials. I piped the purple petals first, allowed them to dry and then piped the yellow petals. I looked at images of real pansies for reference on where to place the petals.

Oh, this is just swoon-worthy.  I love the subtle way you used the edible lace, and your hand-piped lace is exquisite, as is your choice of color her.  A wonderful addition to the challenge!  I am so glad you had time to participate in this one.  

Thank you, Christine. I was originally going to pipe dots in the edible lace grid but felt that it would compete too much with the flowers. I think this way the grid is very much noticeable, but in a way that compliments the flowers. I wanted to create a piece where each element stood out on its own but also worked harmoniously with the other elements to form one beautiful piece. Hopefully, I achieved that. 

I absolutely agree with Christine. 

You more than achieved your goal, you aced it.

Thank you, Pip!

Thank you, Carol. I had tried creating lace a few times with not much success, but now that I'm getting the hang of it, I really like it!

Looks to me like you've pretty much mastered this technique! Gorgeous work β™₯β™₯
