Lambeth Method

Class at the Garden State Cake Show in Lambeth with Sheila Miller yesterday.  I love learning new techniques.  This one is a very old method of layering royal icing piped lines that is supposedly making a comeback!  It's quite time consuming and requires a steadier hand than I have, but I love the dimensional effect- not captured too well in the photos of my practice board.  Would like to try to translate the technique into some contemporary architectural design.
