Pipe tip 2 cornelli lace over cake sides between triangles; use white icing on top and bottom tiers, black icing on middle tier.
Using black icing, pipe tip 3 bead bottom borders; pipe tip 2 bead borders on remaining sides of all triangles. Use global mold to
make four white and two black 4-petal flowers. Attach to triangles using damp brush. Use contrasting icing and tip 1 to decorate flowers with outlines, beads and dots.
At reception: Place roses in flower spikes; insert in cake top.

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.
