Hey Guys!

A couple of months ago I saw on a food network challenge about cakes. This one lady had covered a cake in fondant then used a bendy lace patterned stencil and roughly brushed buttercream over it. Then gently removed the stencil and the effect was soooo pretty. I would love to do this for a cake I have coming up. Anyone ever done anything like that or know where to get those bendy lace stencils??

Thanks!! icon_smile.gif

I don't know about the "bendy lace stencils" but I do this all the time. I just buy stencils in the scrapbook section of the craft store. I would love to see the program you saw, but alas I don't have cable or direct TV.

Great idea! Do they bend enought to use on the sides of a round cake? That's the main thing! It was a great show - her cake came out so pretty!

The stencil she used is most likely from a craft store. they have tons and yes they bend. Just use stiff royal and apply.

Ohh yes! Royal icing!! FABULOUS! Thanks guys, I can't wait to try this out. Don't you just love it when clients give you total freedom on the design??

JStar :

You can find the stencils on line @ - they also have a great catalog - it costs a few dollars but if you place an order with them the price of the catalog goes toward your order. Hope this helps.

I don't know whether you were watching last night, but I think it aired again last night. Yeah they said that she was using royal icing, and being as though I almost live in the craft store, icon_lol.gif I can tell you that is definitely where she got the stencil from. They have a large variety of all kinds of designs. Hope this helped icon_biggrin.gif

Do you just paint the royal or buttercream icing over the stencil, then remove the stencil?

I am planning on making a wedding cake with a whipped topping and want to add a lace look to the cake... how could I do this with a stencil? I am not sure if using a stencil and adding more topping on top of the stencil would work... I have a feeling it will just peel right off with the stencil... any other suggestions?

Stenciling over a fondant cake is much easier than on a buttercream frosted cake. The buttercream must be well crusted before stenciling. I do not think you can stencil over a whipped non-crusted frosting unless you use an air-brush.

That is what I was thinking... I was gonna get one of those wilton sprays... I just don't know if they sell them in the color I am looking for... do you have any other suggestions instead of a stencil?

I also thought of making some lace "pieces" out of fondant and putting them on there, but I am afraid they would be too heavy for the whipped topping.

What about using toothpicks to hold the lace pieces in place on your whipped frosting? Is that an option? You would need to the cake cutter to remove all lace pieces and supports.
