Fishnet stocking embellishments aren’t just for beginners, though. While professional Instagram cake decorators apply massive heaps of fondant to make shapes and characters, they can still use the fishnet stocking to their advantage. It could be used as a layering tool on top of buttercream frosting to give the cake a pop of texture and color. By giving a cake neat diamond shapes, the fishnet stockings come close to recreating the lattice of a beautiful pie.
The pattern of the fishnet tights is so neutral that it works as a timeless cake design. While Pinterest is full of vintage-inspired buttercream cakes with cheeky phrases written in the middle, the fishnet stocking version is an understated chic that requires way less effort. Imagine finishing off a simple lemon loaf or even this Blondie bundt cake with a fishnet stocking imprint of powdered sugar.
Garnish your cake with one slice of lemon or nothing at all, and it’ll look like a masterpiece that belongs in a bakery display. If you want to have more fun, you can even do layers of fishnet stocking decorations, one with powdered sugar and the other with cocoa or matcha powder. The contrasting colors will give your cake an eye-popping appearance.
