Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

When I have did this technique I thinned the RI with corn syrup.  It gives elasticity to the RI and makes it easier to do the cornelli lace.  Will definitely save on your hands!

I've also read that a bit of glycerine has the same effect.

back to the OP about pricing, i agree that normally I wouldn't charge more for the cornelli pattern, but the lace in that photo is so much more elaborate than typical cornelli cakes. wouldn't you agree?

 

i think i would bump up the price a bit. 10 cents a serving?

Oh yes...this is so true.

It could just be my phone..but what is going on with that lace...it looks like its textured or something? That might be worth the price increase

I would give the customer a choice.  I can make it look like that with a tiny cornelli design for $20 (or more) per tier or I can put a larger cornelli lace on the cake for $10 (or more) per tier. 

 

Let the customer decide.  I've had customers say, well then just skip it!  At least you are getting paid for your work and your time.

I agree that it look textured.  It doesn't look like just piped cornelli lace.  I can't figure it out.

Yeah, it doesn't look like cornelli lace to me either. It looks more like sotas. It's hard to see a good close up of the pic.

Since the entire cake will be piped with that technique, and no other decorations are required, I'd consider offering it at no additional charge on only two of the four tiers.  I'd suggest they choose another design on every other tier, or they pay an upcharge for the extra work on the remaining two tiers.  I can't tell you how much extra to charge (only you know how fast or slow you can pipe), but you'll regret it during the process when you realize you didn't charge enough.

You have the descriptions backwards. The Cornelli does not touch or cross over, the Sotas is just a squiggly mess.

No, you're reading it wrong... I guess I should have used a comma after "Sotas" or used parentheses like this:

If you omit the extra thought, it's one sentence -- exactly what I meant to say.  Does it make sense now?

Okay, so the more I look at this the more I think it isn't cornelli lace. I'm just not sure. It looks more textured than that.
