Hey everyone, I really need some help. I'm making a replica of my cousins Wedding Cake for their 15 yr Anniversary THIS WEEKEND! It is a suprise party, So I'm not able to ask the couple questions about the cake. I can't tell if this is a lace pattern or a star tip or what.
I don't think it will be a make or break thing if it is not exact, But I want it to resemble the Original as much as possible
I am attaching a photo, any comments, tips, or photos would be appreciated
The photo certainly is not clear enough to tell
That perticular style cake is fimilar to me but I don't have my books around to ck it out - sorry.
Yes, the pattern is difficult to decipher from the picture, even when enlarged.
My opinion -
It is either sotas or star tip. Given the choice, I would do sotas. It looks like a basic shell border to me.
Very easy cake.
Please let us know what you decided to do, and post a pic for us. Can't wait to see it.
I agree with Sotas... I played with the contrast on the pic to see the pattern better, and it looks like sotas or cornelli lace with a shell border. Should be pretty easy! Good Luck!
I blew it up too and you really can't tell exactly what it is. The sides almost seem to look like some type of basketweave but this isn' the kind of cake that normally has basketweave on there. I thought about sota or corelli lace but the pattern seemed to even for that. Is there any way that you can get information from family without alerting the bride and groom?
Ok, Thanks so, much everyone. I am a little confused on the Sotas technique. Is that the the Cornelli Lace, but the strings more looped on top of each other? That is how it looks. Thanks again for your imput! I will try to post picts when complete.
You are correct about how to do sotas. For more information on them, go to this link on the Wilton website -
Considering your time constraints, I would suggest you do these instead of cornelli lace, which requires more precision and time.
See, I told you it was an easy cake to do. And you were worried.
Glad we could help.
Looks just like the original- great job!
