A bridge wishes to include her grandmother's table lace into the cake design. Now I'm looking for a lace mat as close to this in design. Any ideas?
There's no picture...Usually whenthey want something really specific I just pipe it on. I don't know if that's an option, but if she wants a specific pattern it's the easiest way to do it.
i tell yah what i've done before -- not all lace will cooperate of course but if you wrap your cake with the lace and spray on some color the remove the lace -- it might work for you -- now i did it on fondant dummies so there's that but it is a definite maybe and another thing i've done is again place the lace on the cake -- you'll need to affix it with toothpicks or something -- it's been a long time can't remember exactly but you actually spread icing on it -- probably scrapey scrapey to get it smooth then hold your breath and remove the lace --
now both of those methods work with the right lace and yours looks promising -- it's in your gallery right?
and i used a mister to spray on the color not even an air brush just a brand new spray bottle with a very fine sprayer nozzle
another idea is print sections onto edible paper and cut out designs for the cake -- hearts or diamonds or stripes or...
Sorry wasn't able to upload photo.
That's for the advise so far. Won't be able to use the original lace and the plan is to do white edible lace on white fondant. No colour.
She said "as close as possible" so was hoping to find something very similar.
Yes it's the picture in the gallery @K8memphis. For some reason I could only upload it there...
here's another idea -- do you have the plastic counted cross stitch material in your area? you could impress the fresh fondant with one of those to mimic the tiny criss cross lace pattern then pipe the big sections (crusting buttercream is what i would use) and pat it down with a smoothy smooth brand new never before used/clean cotton cloth --
other than that idk because piping lattice doesn't come out the same kwim? it's too dimensional where you want a flat weave for lace -- like this:
I can't see your comment @pastrypet
Thanks @K8memphis really appreciate all your help
