Hi - could you please look at the attached cake photo sent to me by a bride - she wants me to make the cake have this lace pattern on it (all credit for the cake going to Amy Beck cake design) -- The bride found it on Pinterest. I have been searching for a lace pattern to match this with no luck. Can anyone tell me if this is a fondant mold or some type of cutter?? Any help would be appreciated!
I believe it is individual flowers and leaves cut out, applied to the fondant "undercoat," and connected with piped royal icing.
I think in the Contemporary Cake Bible by Lindy Smith, there's this technique. She cuts the pieces with a cutter, glues them to the cake forming a pattern, then joins the pieces with royal icing.
It looks like cutters to me and the overpiped and attached using r/i. hth I looked at the pic again on pinterest. It says it is hand cut. hth
Thank you everyone - I will now be able to give her an accurate estimate know what kind of time will be involved with this cake!
Glad I found this thread before posting the question myself. I've seen these exact shapes on other cakes (probably inspired by the now-famous cake pictured above) so I assume they're probably sold in a set. Does anyone know where to buy this set or who makes it? Thanks!
AI have the book by Lindy Smith which this comes from. There are five different cutters made for her and available on her website.
Did anyone find the actual flower cutter set or just the cutters?
looks like the cutters are on the page that imagenthatnj liked to.
