I have a wedding cake coming up the the bride has requested this fondant pattern on.

 

 

 

I found molds similar to this on ebay and they are labeled as fondant lace molds but they look like molds you would use with sugar veil.

 

 

 

Has anyone used these molds before? I have never worked with sugar veil and to be honestly I am a little intimidated by it!

 

Thanks for your help!

AI'd love to know this too because I've been wanting to learn more about sugar veil.

AWow, have just had a look at that listing. Total knock off of sugarveil, they even show how to use, using sugarveil instructions! I wouldn't try fondant in those, too fine by the looks of the patterns.

That's what I was thinking! So if these will not work has anyone seen fondant molds that will work with fondant similar to lace on the cake the bride choose? I have done some searching online and I have not found any yet. The lace on the cake pictured appears to be fondant not delicate like sugar veil.

Hi PattiB/Cece,

 

Although the results are very intricate, SugarVeil is really not difficult at all to do - it's just different from other cake decorating techniques, kind of like learning fondant after being familiar with buttercream. If you go to http://www.facebook.com/sugarveilicing, you can see photos and read peoples' comments as they use SugarVeil for the first time. Some have questions, and Facebook is great for letting an audience experience and learn with them along the way. 

 

We've several Confectioners' Mats that create shapes of lace that would go with the brides request - http://www.sugarveil.com/mat/sugarveil-mat.htm, but you can also download and print the lace designs of the cakes pictured on this page http://www.sugarveil.com/icing_dispenser/design_patterns.htm. When you place the designs under greased parchment paper, you can trace/pipe the lines with a parchment cone filled with SugarVeil icing. SugarVeil "sets" so that you can peel it from the parchment and, because it is flexible, you can wrap the lace around a cake. Or you can also make it days ahead of time and store it between sheets of parchment in a zipped bag until you are ready to place it onto the cake.

 

Do let me know if you've any questions - also, if you'd like to see SugarVeil in action, take a look at the videos here http://www.youtube.com/sugarveil. Thank you!

AHi there you may not have heard but there is a new product on the market callas Cake Lace which I am sure you could use inthosemoulds. It is just like sugar veil but 10 times easier and ready to use in minutes. Have used it several times and I love it. It is made by Clare Bowman. Www.clarebowman.co.uk

Hi. Time has passed since this thread began but I just found it. Have you worked with Clare Bowman's Cake Lace in humid weather? I am wondering whether humidity is a problem and, if so, do you have any hints on coping with it.
