AI'm doing a lace wedding cake at the end of this month, and I have no idea where to start. She doesn't want Cornelli lace, she wants something "delicate and elegant" her theme is vintage. I've looked at stencils but they all seem to be really bulky, my hands tend to shake a bit so I'm afraid of free handing it, but i could follow wa pattern scratched onto the cake. I've never done this before, please help! I've gotten in way over my head!

AHhmm well If you don't want to pipe it on the cake(there are a bunch of utube videos on it if you type it in) you can always get edible lace especially for cakes. It looks gorgeous too! Here's one of the many links I'd look at: http://www.sugarveil.com/mat/ Hope I helped and good luck!

You could try using Sugarveil? or check our Karen Davies' range of lace moulds that you can use to mould fondant and the wrap around the cake - these give a really realistic lace effect

Get a piece of real lace and emboss it onto your freshly-covered (sugarpaste/fondant) cake - press it in well with a smoother to give good definition then you can pipe over the markings with royal icing and use a damp paintbrush to stipple it to lose the neat lines.  If you paint over the dried piping with edible lustre it gives a lovely effect.

AI've read on other post here that sugarveil is hard to work with in the beginning so not sure if that's the way you want to go unless you are experienced with it. I've never tried the link I'm gonna post but she does get the lace affect on her cake, however it does look like you would have to practice alittle bit doing it this way too m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=URr0z9GMbk0&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DURr0z9GMbk0 Have you looked online a stenciled maybe you can find at delicate one there

Oh that might work or would they be to delicate and break a lot?

I think that purchasing a lace mold would be your best bet.  There's so many on the market.  Check eBay.  If you go on Utube and key in lace mold there's probably hundreds of DIY videos to guide you.  If you just need markings in the fondant, and need something quick and cheap, visit the largest craft store you can find and go into their Cricut Machine and Martha Stewart aisles, there's a ton of things you can use to impress a design into the fondant then pipe over.  One thing I purchased today is a pretty scroll of very small glass beads mounted on a clear flexible backing so you can see where you're pressing it.  That's all I needed was some sort of a guide so that my design won't look wonky.

AThis is very intricate but maybe something like this. It would be very time consuming. I personally would get sick of doing it. www.mycakedecoratingshop.co.uk/royal-lace-impression-mat

Atry caljavaonline.com they have lace molds. It's really easy to work with just don't make your fondant to thin when you roll it out in the molds.
