Anyone got any USA contact ideas?  Looking for a fine lace mat I can use with the new liquid lace stuff.  I found one but it has a floral design embedded into the net and a scalloped edge.  Just need the netting.  Looking for a larger design than tulle but smaller than fishnet.  Like the netting brides wear on retro wedding hats or shorter veil hair decorations.

It is hex so not a perfect match for the netting...maybe you could get that pourable silicone and make a mold?

So funny, was just looking at that one this morning - I have it - but the design is too big.  Thought about making one or just using real netting and tell them not to eat that part.  It's for a bridal shower cake and she wants a 3-D standup hot pink corset.  The netting was for the inset on the front.  I'll make the corset out of RKT to keep it light.  Just need to visit a DIY store for an internal frame.  Sigh....................why me ................and why do I keep saying "yes".

I'm sure my post is way too late.  I too am looking for the same type mold and so far, only found this:




Not sure of the size of the pattern though since I think (not 100% sure) that the mold measures 16" square.  And of course found way too many other molds that I want from the same site *sigh*


What did you end up using if I may ask?  I need mine for a cake later this year with a dress theme.

I did find one - wasn't a fine mesh but it did the job.  Had to order it from a company overseas.  Let me research it for you.

Thank you for offering to see if you could find the mold you used.  Since my last post, I found a couple of alternatives.  The big issue was the patterns (few that are available) the size of the pattern was larger than the scale I needed for my cake.  Finally I found one that (from the description) seems to be the right pattern size and its a big mat  22 1/2" x 15".

After seeing the one you referred to by winbeckler I realized that the mesh on mine is larger.  Love the mat you found but it's described as an impression mat.  Can you write to them and ask if they've also used it with sugar lace making liquid?  If so, then I'm getting one too.  The mat I have is very small in comparison - about  8 X 8".  Wanted to use it on this cake but at the last minute changed the design and used another lace mat instead on the top but the bows at the base as made with my netting mat.  I am SOOOO loving edible lace.

Love the cake!  I did see some mats that were the same size as the bows that you made for your cake.  Comes down to needing a wider width.  I did email them to ask but I also found what appears to be the same mat here:




Looks like its safe for lace making.  I did order one (from the first source) before finding the other website.

I made my first sugar lace this past weekend and I agree, I am totally hooked on it!  I use Sugar Dress and couldn't be happier with the product.  Also found a place nearby that sells it so I won't have to order over the internet which would be nice for a change. 


Edited to add:  Just checked and it is oven safe (same mold by same company)   The website above in this post just happens to have more info posted on it than the first site I found it on.  Yippee!!  Was beginning to think my search wasn't going to yield any results for what I needed.

Just received a reply from Winbeckler that the mat is indeed heat safe to 400 degrees F.  Ordered one and can't wait to receive it!
