Hello, I am new to this site. I stopped decorating four years ago and sold a lot of my baking and decorating tools. Well I have a wedding cake to do in May of 2014 for a friend and I am looking for a border lace mold for buttercream. I had bought one back in 2005, but sold it when I stopped decorating. I can't remember who I ordered it from back then. It was about 12" long and 4" high and at the end of the silicone a 3" lace was attached at both ends which allowed you to pull the mold away from the cake and release the frozen lace border. These lace molds are beautiful and were made specifically for buttercream. All you have to do is spread buttercream over the mold, put the mold into the freezer for about five minutes so the buttercream freezes and then place the mold agains yourcake and release the frozen buttercream. Now I wished I had never sold this when I stopped decorating. Anyway, I thought I would see if anyone might know of these molds. It seems like the seller was out in Arizona or somewhere up north.
I'I never heard of putting buttercream in a lace mold...but sounds like something I need to try. I get my pretty lvece molds from CalJave. Not sure if this is the place you are talking about.
The molds were made for the use of buttercream. The lace molds were beautiful and so much easier than using fondant. I just wished I could find the site on line where I bought them from. The site CalJave is not it, but thank you so much.
This is very interesting, I would love an update. Sometimes I find the texture of fondant offputting so I prefer to use buttercream whenever I can. A buttercream lace alternative to hand-piping or fondant/sugarveil sounds great! :)
I remember seeing instructions on doing this, but the business went out-of-business years ago. Couldn't you do this with any silicone mold......It was done with a stiff American buttercream icing.
