Sedona Cakes Lace Cake

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

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 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!

I darkened the picture so you could see the detail:

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

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

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. :)

You can get lace cut outs, that you apply and then pipe small lines of royal to 'connect'.
its extremely simple, albeit time consuming.

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.
