Snow Dusted Cake Using Granny's Lace

I found this idea on pinterest and could not wait to try it.

 On a cooled sheet of baked brownies, I placed a piece of lace and sprinkled powdered sugar over it.

Carefully remove the lace once you have sprinkled the sugar on top.

 





Garnished with rose petals and strawberries, it makes a pretty dessert.
This gives me thoughts about a use for all those old doilies that my grandmother made! I have tried this technique using plastic stencils, but the lace worked better. 
I can see using smaller pieces of lace on individual brownies- kind of jazzes them up a bit.
