I have a bride that brought me this picture of a Ron Ben-Israel cake. I am losing my mind trying to figure out how to do the lace-like pattern around the tiers. Is that a mold?

Where in the world can I find it?

ANY help is appreciated!
Wedding is on the 30th of this month!

There are many different designs.

Since the caption says that Ron Ben-Israel duplicated lace from the bride's dress for this cake, I imagine he made some molds from the actual lace. There are mold-making kits available for sale (you could try googling this to see what's out there). There's even one that's in the tutorial section here on CC called "Make-Your-Own-Molds" (it's down at the bottom of the home page). Once you have the mold made, you just make as many molded fondant pieces as you need for the cake. You might not get the same lace as he used, but it would probably be more significant to have the actual lace pattern of the bride's own gown.

Thank you for your help!

Bluehue there is one on the page that I think is close enough to the original pic so I will probably order that one. Trying not to choke on how expensive it is! icon_rolleyes.gif

Their molds are quite pricey, but really good - nothing sticks to them! I have a few of them.

OH NO!!!! I clicked on the link. I knew I shouldn't have, but I did. And there are some BEAUTIFUL items there.

Fortunately, shipping from the US to the UK is quite expensive - so I've managed to persuade myself I CANNOT and WILL NOT buy anything. (however, my cousin who lives in Milwaukee is hopefully coming over in February, so I can't promise I won't order anything then.... icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif )

So are you going to charge the bride the same price as a Ron-Ben Israel cake? ;D.
My daughter chose an RBI cake design for her wedding (long before I started decorating) and the bakery did a wonderful job in keeping with the spirit of the design...and fortunately for me did not charge as much as him!
Good luck with the cake...it is sure to be lovely!

I actually saw a cake show on TV where he took a pasta machine, rolled gum paste out to the size 2 size and then took a portion of the lace, laid it on the gum paste and then rolled it through the pasta machine together. It came out beautiful. If you could get it to work, it would save you on the lace molds.
