I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I've been asked to recreate a wedding cake for an anniversary party but I can't seem to figure out how this is done. I can't seem to figure out how the lattice stuff is done, would it be edible or not? I don't even know where to start with that.

Any tips or suggestions would be great.

The picture it a little bit fuzzy but I'm wondering if that isn't done with Royal Icing??? I have a Wilton book that has a simular cake in it and it's done with Royal. You'll have your work cut out for you with this one. I guess you would make a template pattern and then pipe over that...allow it to dry and then stick it very carefully in the cake. Make extra because Royal shows no mercy when it breaks!!!

Best of Luck,

Chrissy

It's definitely alot of royal. Used to do this stuff back in the 70's. there are lace points on the bottom of the tiers and lattice pieces, probably dried over big shapes like flower forms, only wider. You need to double pipe and make extra pieces.

Try the Wilton Pattern locater page.

You probably know the approximate year it was made, so you may even find the complete patterns. They have many lattice patterns there.
