I'm a big fan of doilies.. especially paper doilies. I so adore my mom's crotchets, i tried my hand at it once but failed miserably. haha.. some things are just not meant for me, sewing it is.
I think the cheapest place u can buy pretty paper doilies ~ bakery shops! and Jusco. They carry square ones too!
For this RV i made for myself (hihi), i put a paper doily on the cream cheese topping (might be a good idea to put the cake in the fridge for a while to make the topping stiffer) and dust cocoa powder on it. Take it away, and voila! I adore the effects! Love it. Full stop.
Since this is a small cake (7 inch), i just used a part of the pattern on it. Imagine if u have a bigger cake and a prettier doily. Imagine the possibilities... :D
Have a good Wednesday, friends!
