I have several wedding cakes coming up, and lace is what they want. I have found 2 beautiful cakes, but I cannot find any impression mats or molds that might have been used to make the lace. Can anyone help?

If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it!

I won't be much help on the first one but the second one looks like RI piped on fondant. The flowers and leaves are brush embroidered.

I agree, they look like royal icing brushed embroidery and probably airbrushed after. I did one myself.

Sorry!

Funnily enough, a bride-to-be sent me that exact picture (first one), but I was already booked up so couldn't do it.

I'd have tried to imprint the pattern (I'd have explained would do my best to find similar, but may not be able to get exact pattern) onto the sugarpaste and then coloured it gold. But failing that, stencilling in royal icing first and then once dry, colouring gold.

The second one is most definitely hand-piped royal icing.
