Chocolate Lace Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy - and this was my first time working with candy coating. I used a slightly different cascade pan and had to change the quantity of the lace patterns. The pattern was easy to follow and make and attach to the cake. I recommend using a double boiler to avoid burning the melted chocolate and using some thin gloves when piping the lace pattern so it is more comfortable to hold the bag of warm chocolate. The cake looks VERY impressive when it is complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't have the cascade pan, but I used one similar--turned out great! Working with the candy melts was fairly easy, just had to be very careful on tracing the pattern. The pieces are very fragile, and you have to handle with care. I would suggest you make extra pieces to allow for breakage. The finished product was gorgeous and elegant. If you love chocolate this is the cake to make!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love chocolates and lace both, so when I saw this cake I run away to buy the cascade pan. It came out good and to be very honest I didnt want to cut it I just wanted to keeo it like this. Finally after taking lots of picture and looking it for hours n hours I decided to cut it. The taste was mmmmmmmmmm awesome. Thanks for the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took this cake to a pot luck party and what a hit! It is a little difficult to get the chocolate scrolls to come out, but make a few extras in case of breakage. Don't be in a hurry to trace the pattern it works better with the chocolate. As they say, practice makes perfect! Don't get discouraged, it's worth it in the end.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I could never get the candy melts to be the right consistency or to look good when I tried tracing patterns. Plus they break very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from People asumed the scrolls were not edible and cheered when they found out they were. Big hit!! Got several cake orders off of this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was actually surprisingly less complicated to make than it looked! The most difficult part is not breaking the moldings!
