I have had a bride ask me to quote her how much it would cost of make a cake that looks as the following.

To be honest I have no idea to where I would even start to make somethign like this.

Anyone out there ever tried anything like this?

looks hand piped to me!!
You need a lot of patience and time to do that... You might wanna try that and practice....
I would charge 1$ more for each servings...

You could find a lace pattern, put wax paper over and pipe sugarveil on it, then lift off the sugarveil and lay it on the cake.

Yip that's sugarveil. I bought some a long time ago at an ICES show but have never used it (didn't buy the pen). Good luck!

Poohbear, you don't need the pen. From what I am told, the whole setup is nothing more than a glorified fish tank pump anyways. I suppose the constatn gravity feed action would help, but a good old parchment cone and/or piping bag with quality tips is just fine too!

And that is most definitely sugarveil. I can see the twist marks on some of the "netting".

You can achieve that with buttercream. Sugar Veil is basically like royal icing(it dries fast), color flow(shiny) but streches like nothing else. It is kind of messy if you are not used to working with it, and it can spread. It can be work without the gun, yet is kind of fun with the gun

I have an idea, what if you use a stencil look-a-like with black bc? would that work?

Finding a stencil look alike I think would be almost impossible.
Using sugarveil would make it possible to work the lace ahead of time and not worry so much about messing up the cake. Otherwise it is do-able w/icing right on the cake for anyone ambitious enough icon_smile.gif

personally i like the sugar veil i have the pen and it is fun to use and i think it makes my hand less tired than using a parchment bag because you hold it like a pen. I have never got to make a really elaborate cake with it but i just got it not to long ago and i have messed with it a lot and i like it. it is pricey but i got it as a gift from the hubby.

This forum supports my husband's theory that women check out boobs more than men!

that's funny. I think that I would NEVER have the confidence to wear a sugar-veil wedding dress! I need a little more support to support my jiggly bits!!!
