Hi Everyone

First post and only joined 5 mins ago!
I'm a very keen cake maker/decorator.I'm not a professional just self taught so far...I just love baking and especially decorating!
I've started making them now for friends as well as family as people said they were amazing icon_smile.gif which is lovely to hear!
I'm getting married in May next year so as you can imagine I would love to make my own wedding cake,not only for enjoyment but to save money!
I've seen this idea and have fallen in love with it!
I'm confident in stacking cakes and icing etc but its the lace applique I have no idea about!
I've watched numerous you tube videos and there are different things coming up.
I wondered if anybody could shed some light on this?

Any suggestions would be great!

Thanks x

Can you just copy and paste the URL into a reply?

Otherwise, upload a photo to your gallery and paste the URL into your reply.

Most lace detail I have seen is done using molds.

Have you seen Elaine MacGregor's videos on you tube? She has quite a few on royal icing work. Here's a link to one of them.

The link worked fine. I could be wrong but it looks like the lace design is done with a floral silicone mold. If you look at RBI's cake on this link, its quite the same idea only his cake is more elaborate.

I thought brush embroidery too but the design on your cake seems too raised to be that.

Check the link below. The silicone floral mold (cakes by sam) is very close to the floral design on your cake. Not sure of the brooches though. Even with my magnifyer, it was hard to tell if they were real or hand made. I'd wager bought though.

It's on both these UK sites but for some reason, the mold number you need is not showing that it's for sale?

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

http://www.sugarshack.co.uk/index.html?action=search&searchtype=catID&quicksearch=6&p_start=28&sortType=&submit=erm

The photo of the mold is show on both sites along with the mold numbers that are for for sale, but the order number on celcrafts one is for the heart shaped mold only.

The second link has the same mold, shown with other molds but but the order numbers are for different molds in the photo. Sounds confusing I bet, but you should understand what I mean when you click on the links.


I suggest you contact both sites to see if they might have the mold you need in stock, as it may well be their websites have not been updated. The floral mould number you want to ask about is #1482. Thats the same mold number that's on cakes by sam.
