Is this cake decorated with "real" lace or with fondant lace? Looks like polyester lace to me. Has anyone used polyester of cotton lace directly on a cake?
Looks like cake lace to me!
This is definitely cake lace.
It looks like one of the original 'Sugar Lace' mats. very pretty cake.
Yes, definitely cake lace.
It's the Sugar Veil lace mold. Sugar Veil was the first sugar lace.
Thanks. Have any of you ever put “real” lace on a cake? Thinking it could be lined with acetate or other barrier. Or is that strictly a no-no?
Here is my anniversary cake I did a few months back. I have cake lace directly on the cake. Cake lace is completely edible. You don’t need a barrier between the lace and the cake.
June, I love that cake! Even the color makes me happy.
I don't know about putting real lace on the cake, but people use fabric ribbon around the base of their tiers all the time, so (if your lace is new and fresh or maybe laundered) I see no reason why you couldn't use it on a fondant covered cake. I don't think I would want to put it against buttercream, though. It would have to be removed prior to cutting.
Thanks Sandra. ❤️
Cake lace is just natural ingredients.. tylose powder, icing sugar, maybe some corn syrup, glycerin, water. I wouldn’t personally eat it. We pulled off the fondant with the lace attached and discarded when we ate the cake.
Beautiful cakes and great advice. Thanks everyone.
