Hi all. I have been asked to make cupcakes for a friends wedding and we found a lace like cupcake decoration online that someone piped with royal icing by hand. The bride is keen for this design however I am wondering if there is a way to achieve this without having to pipe with a template and by hand?

Any suggestions would be great.

Could you use fondant instead and use a cutter?

Could you share a link to the picture? I've never used it, but I've heard that Sugar Veil is fairly easy to use.

Hey, this is a picture of the icing we found.

Sugar Veil makes some round lace molds/mats that would look similar. I've never used Sugar Veil, but from what I've seen, it may not ever become stiff, so I don't know if the lace would stay flat.

If you used a fondant or gum paste mold, you wouldn't be able to see through the fondant. It would have the design, but there wouldn't really be holes in it.

Those are a couple of other options, but to get the same look as the photo, I think you'd need to use royal icing and pipe it.

Thanks for your help - I might keep searching for fondant cutters that give me a similar look. Not having any luck with that either! I'm from Australia and we don't seem to have much variety here when it comes to cake decoration supplies.
