I have a bride who would like a square cake decorated similar to her dress. The dress has a lace pattern on the bodice. Her colors are black, white and red. She is thinking about doing the lace affect in red.

Are there any pictures out there of cake like this? I am having trouble searching the gallery icon_confused.gificon_cry.gif

Thanks!

I don't have any pictures for you, but one of the CC members showed me a great way to get this effect on your cake by placing the lace on the cake, apply a thin coat of RI, and lift off the lace - makes a perfect stencil.

It would make a beautiful effect for the cake you describe since she wants the lace effect in red.

Lace can make the perfect stencil, even easier than RI is to airbrush or use canned spray.

Okay, at the risk of "dating" myself. When I was a teenager (never mind the year) the "cool" guys used to "lace" their cars by putting lace on the car and airbrushing it. Don't see why that wouldn't work with a cake as well.

Having said that I agree with snowshoe1. For a wedding especially. It will take a while, but, the bride will love you for it! Use the airbrush idea for a birthday cake or something! Hey! Maybe "I" will use the airbrush idea! LOL

Keep on Cakin and Bakin!
