Hi all,
I am new to all this and was wondering how you make the beautiful look of lace on cakes? I can't imagine someone spending hours free-handing all the lace little by little. Is there some kind of mold or stencil to make the lace look realistic or so perfect? Some even look like a real peice of lace is laying on the cake but its not. I attached a photo of an example of the lace work I am talking about.
Thanks for help,

a lot of lace is made with molds. on the home page of CC under the newest cake recipes there is a tutorial on how to make your own lace mold. you can also buy them at,%20Forms,%20CelShapes/Molds

Some people even use Martha Stewart's lace punches meant for paper, but you have to make sure your fondant/gumpaste is really thin and air dried for 10-15 mins so it's not too sticky. thumbs_up.gif

Sometimes there's a glitch and won't work... can you post a link to your example?

I purchased mine at caljava online. You might also be talking about sugarveil. I havn't tried it yet but it is beautiful.

I have to make a wedding cake for a friend next weekend and was looking through cake pictures on this site when I came acrossed this picture. I remembered purchasing this lace mold two years ago and haven't been able to use it on a cake yet. After showing her this picture she was sold. I will be using cranberry luster dust pearls instead of the gold pictured, white butter cream and stargazer lilies. Hopefully it will look half as beautiful as the picture I found on CC.
