Fondant lace

I have a bride who has requested something similar to this picture. I was planning on using a silicone lace mold, but I haven't been able to find anything like this pattern. Does anyone recognize it or know of something similar?

Here's the picture showing the design better:

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

That is a much better picture! Thanks! Does anyone recognize it or have any suggestions?

Could it have been a custom mould that they made themselves using a piece of actual lace by any chance?  I only say this as the ridge detail on the lace bits doesn't look quite as pronounced/detailed as it does when compared with lace moulds I have used bought from the shops...?

Good point. Have you ever made your own mold? Is it difficult?

I have made my own molds with intricate buttons before and found it very easy (first attempt came out perfectly!) but I have never tried it with lace so can't help there, sorry!  If you had a fairly 'chunky' lace and could stretch it evenly so that it didn't distort then I would have thought it would be fine but i'd imagine it would be hard to get definition on some of the really delicate ones.  I use silicone plastique for mine and love the stuff!  http://www.makeyourownmolds.com/silicone-plastique  Good luck!

Do you know if Hobby Lobby or Michaels carries anything like the make your own molds? I'm very short on time and not sure it would get here in time if I ordered online. Are there any other DIY options that might work? Thank you for all your help. I'm getting very nervous and a little desperate😬

Don't know if those shops would sell it as I'm UK based and have never even been to one, sorry!  I know there are other DIY silicone products that should do the trick (my brother is always saying it would be much cheaper!) but to the best of my knowledge, they are not food grade so are not suitable for cakes.  I suspect that they wouldn't do any harm but still, can't risk it in the food business.  Even with the silicone though, you'd still need the lace to make the mold...do you have that?

I finally found it, but can only find it on UK websites. Most of them don't ship to the US, or if they do can't get it here in time. The mold is called Great Impressions Lace Scroll Floral Large Mould if anyone has any ideas:)

There are lots of people on etsy that make lace molds.  Most people on etsy do custom orders if you or the bride can find a lace applique that matches this design.  Another place that you can get lace molds is CKproducts.  I have also seen them on Ebay.  You can get mold making materials from chefrubber.com and marvelousmolds.com too
