Hello radwa

Lace can be made with Royal icing but it will not be flexible like the sugar veil because it sets hard. In youtube there are many tutorial for making Royal icing lace just search ‘how to make Royal icing lace’. Elaine Mcgregor tutorials are very good as she covers a variety of icing techniques. Here http://www.pinterest.com/dreamingofcakes/royal-icing/ you can see some very beautiful designs made with Royal icing. Hope this helps.
