Hello friends!

I have a wedding cake for a month or so and Ive done chocolate collar cakes before but never a tiered one and never the 'lace' effect.
here's a link to an example:

I'll be doing that exactly but in white chocolate and real white roses on top.
Does anyone have any advice on this? Anything would be greatly appreciated to just help me get started on it.

Thank you icon_smile.gificon_biggrin.gif

It looks to me that the best way to get it done would be to stack the cakes without the collar and then start with the collar from the top tier, moving down to the bottom. At least that's the way I would do it.

It looks like the "lace" is a bunch of tightly piped concentric circles on a strip of acetate, then put around the cake with the "back" of the strip out so that the "lace" is flat. Hope that makes sense.

That's a chocolate wrap. Take a piece of acetate, place your lace pattern under it, drizzle chocolate over it in the shape of the lace pattern, let set up for a moment and wrap the cake. Very easy!
