What are you most proud of? Looks pretty. My wife likes it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch out for muscle fatigue as this was very tedious. The consistency of the royal icing needed to be just right for it would either flow too fast from the bag or not at all. Start your royal icing mix on the stiff side and practice. Add one drop of water at a time until the consistency is where you like it. When laying the lace often you'll need to build up each lace piece by over-piping them. A lot of effort, true, but the end results could be amazing both to you and to those who see your work.

It looks like sugarveil lace. Great work!

Thank you. While I did use sugar veil on the wedding cake itself, this particular base, which was part of this same wedding cake for my daughter was tediously piped with royal icing. I wish now that I kept it. Oh well.
