Lambeth cakes are a vintage style of decorating cakes using royal icing.

The Lambeth cake decorating technique involves intricate piping and layering of royal icing to create elaborate designs, often resembling lacework, flowers, and other intricate patterns.

This style was particularly popular for wedding cakes and other special occasions where a highly detailed and ornate appearance was desired.

The new modern versions use buttercream piping instead. These have the same effect but tase a lot nicer!
