Lace cake

This cake was for a birthday and I wanted to use my new FMM textured lace set. It was really easy, you just use the cutter to get the edge and then push one of 3 moulds to create the pattern. I only chose the ivory icing because there was a bigger packet in the shop, but I think I prefer it, the pattern comes out stronger. It's a nice simple technique that produces a pretty result.

The inside is a chocolate madeira cake, a second attempt which worked out much better. The first was a bithday cake a few months ago. Using much higher grade chocolate of 75% cocoa solids meant a much better result.
