The random lacy design of this free-form technique depends on the continuous curving lines that do not overlap or touch. Can be used in a small design area or on an entire cake surface. Good for wedding, anniversary and other formal event cakes, but lends itself to more casual themes, as well.
Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.

Pretty and great for a garden party. I like putting them on a stick and including them in a flower cookie bouquet.
