Hello all you wonderful people.
I am a newbie to posting on this forum have been an avid reader though for a loong while. I have been making cakes (Not professionally but for family members and friends etc) for as long as I can remember.
Now heres my problem My father and I will be making an extra special cake this year ... MY WEDDING CAKE!!! everything else for the wedding is taken care of so this is the only thing I have to worry about.
After looking around for such a long time I have finally decided to try to emulate a beautiful peggy porschen cake.
The thing I am stuck on is the lace .. I have NEVER done lace before and so I am planning on practicing ALOT!! Does anyone know the best way to do this??
I was thinking of a silicone mould?? Are they hard to use?? Anyone got any tips on lace making?? Also does anyone know of anywhere good to buy decent lace moulds from?? (I am in the UK)
Thanks in advance

I think that lace moulds would be your best option. if you have a link to the cake you want to do maybe that would help in us helping you exactly what or which one you need. globalsugarart is a good site to check out but i dont know how well they do in the UK.

You can get those lace molds from celcrafts which is a uk site.

https://www.celcrafts.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Silicone_Moulds__CK__29.html

The pictures are deceptive, you think you are ordering multiple moulds but it is actually only one so make sure you cross reference the numbers.

Lisa,
How would you order from this site ... It looks very confusing to me with soo many numbers etc
(I'm a bit of a techno-phobe) Usually leaving all of the technical stuff for my H2B icon_redface.gif

Hello fortheloveofcake1984!

I have found some similar on ebay put 230421372222, 250685203580, 350102463969 into the search it's a buy it now so you don't have to wait or bid against anyone! Also FPC sugarcrafts is an ebay store with lots of choice. What will you be using in the moulds? Fondant or flowerpaste? HTH! pm me if you need some advice! Congratulations on your wedding! icon_biggrin.gif Kxx

On that cake I would say you need a 1482, 1601 and a 1200.

So you would add these to the cart CK Lace-Maker 1482 Ref: SM11 @ £14.40... CK Lace-Maker 1601 Ref: SM15 @ £14.40 and CK Lace-Maker 1200 Ref: SM13 @ £20.80

I have used celcrafts before and had no issues with them, prompt delivery and good products.

Although, the eBay molds listed above are nice, they are not the same ones used in Peggy's cake. The ones you get decides on how exactly you want to replicate her design.
