Ok, this is kind of odd, I have several post about this one cake, and i forgot to add this part, The BTB is wanting a cake 4 tiers and her topper is a tree with chrystals hanging off the branches, There getting married under a big Tree, Dont know , and i aint asking, Any way the MOB said she probably wants it kind of plan but a little Vintage, Im trying to visualize this cake. Now heres my thought, would lace instead of ribbon look good around this cake? This might give it sort of a vintage look, since the topper has chrystals on it, , She isnt a fondant person so the cake is going to be BC I can make a Cameo out of fondant to put on one of the cakes probably the bottom one , Help , anyone? Need to get my brain going im meeting with them Sunday
Thanks everyone icon_confused.gif

I would definately use the lace as a trim. I just added it to a cake stand for the same request and it did instantly give a vintage feel. Also with the cameo I used the same concept on my cake and that definately made it look old world. I used antique gold on the cake also. I have just added the photo to if you would like to look. HTH.

Sure, I think you can use lace around a cake. You could also use pearls. There are a lot of lace molds you can buy to press fondant into to make beautiful lace borders.

Vintage makes me think of Lambeth style decorating, which is traditionally done in RI over fondant, but you can replicate a Lambeth-esque look with BC, just won't be as detailed.
