I am wondering how to go about executing the lace detail on this cake. Is it royal icing? cut-out fondant? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

i'm gonna guess sugarveil alone or sugarveil plus overpiped fondant pieces

I came across "Crystal Lace" in my research (similar to SugarVeil) and it appears that it may have come from an assortment of their molds. I am not 100% on that though.

 

I have an inquiry into Sedona Cake Couture on the off chance that they are willing to point me into a direction.

 

Thanks!

Well, that cake was hand piped with royal icing and a number 2 tip.....just made up the design as I went. No other secrets to it. Good luck in replicating it.....and be sure to charge enough - it took a long time to pipe that design!!

 

So, yeah...WOW! Hand piped? Sheesh, I mean, I know I have some talent but not near enough to feel confident in recreating her design.

 

Back to the drawing board. :)

AYou can get lace cut outs, that you apply and then pipe small lines of royal to 'connect'. its extremely simple, albeit time consuming. http://www.brides.com/blogs/aisle-say/2011/04/lace-wedding-cake.html That is how the lace on this one was done. A bit of over piping on the cut outs adds a lot to the realism as well, but still way easier than completely hand piping.

Yeah, I think I am going to end up going the route of pulling together a bunch of different cut-outs and silicone molds, then over-piping (I am doing some online shopping/research as we speak). Time consuming, yes, but I think it's the only way to pull it off. My free hand skills aren't where they should be if I were to wing it.

 

Thankfully, I have until May 25 to get everything together (technically, a week before then since that is her wedding day, but you get the gist).

As long as you mentioned Crystal Lace, have you been to  http://www.allaboutcakeart.com/catalog.php?category=6

 

They have some very pretty mats.  You could cut the finished sugar lace apart just overpipe the pieces.   Just another alternative - Love the cake :)

PERFECT!! Thanks...I am currently browsing Ebay, CKproducts, and Decorate The Cake.

 

I also found "Cake Lace" which is just like SugarVeil or Crystal Lace, except you bake it!! What??? I am not fond of buying out of country simply because of shipping costs, but I like the idea of baking the lace molds, which takes 10-20 minutes as opposed to waiting for it to dry over a few hours before being able to do repeat that mold again.
