i have a bride who wants the tall cake on the left. does anyone know how to get the border to look like that? i'm guessing its fondant, is there an impression mat or something like that? or do you think its real ribbon?

I have 2 guesses....

1) It's a lace

or

2) Someone has a very steady hand and did the string work by hand

Looks like a non-edible ribbon to me.

They have something very similar at Joann's Fabric my MIL buys it alot for trimmings and lace shirts. You might find it there, but of course its non edible icon_rolleyes.gif

It looks piped to me. Most cakes of that quality aren't going to have a fabric ribbon around it. They are obviously designer cakes. I would probably use fabril LOL, there is no way I could possibly pipe that, but that is what it looks like, probably royal icing.

you might look at a website called designer stencils dot com. they have a very large selection of culinary stencils that might work to get something close to what your client wants.

The one on the left hand is a gumpaste lace maker by a lady name Rosa. The 2 on the right hand are real ribbon.

Ok. so 2 questions...
1- How on earth do you use it?
2- Re: CC wedding kit... Do we order the kit and make a decoration for the cake inspired by the chandelier???

it looked like a press/cutout to me. roll out the fondant, press the mat/cutter down in place..

i think..

It has 2 pieces, you need to use gumpaste. You roll your gumpaste and press it down with the other piece and cut the excess. Then clean you edges. This one can be a bit more tricky cause all the holes in it, so you need a really good quality gumpaste..

Rosa's molds are pretty awesome ( I have a few of them) But that is not want is on that cake. Look at the diamond cutout on the cake it is way smaller than the mold. There are also little circle detail along the edge. Rosa's mold could work for what you are trying to accomplish but it looks like real lace to me.


Just my 2 cents.
