This Elegant Lace Wedding Cake is one of my very early cakes and remains a favorite. If I have one regret about it, it’s that I didn’t get better photos. They’re all dark or grainy or… well, just not good. But all of that aside, the lace, the pearls, the shimmer… it’s so classic!
For my very first cake here at Rose Bakes, I want to share this Elegant Lace Wedding Cake that I made back in November. I’ve already shared some pics over on Facebook, but I wanted to tell you which Lace Molds I used and give you a few more pictures.
I was super nervous about this cake… the bride had actually sent me a link to this Martha Stewart cake and I am so not Martha Stewart. But after a little research, I thought I could pull it off!
The lighting is really terrible in these next pictures taken in my kitchen, but somehow I like how the details show up better.
Elegant Lace Wedding Cake
Surprisingly, it was super easy to do the lace! I used Satin Ice Gum Paste, rolled out pieces about 2 inches tall and as long as the molds, then laid them into the molds and pressed them together. Then…here’s the key… freeze them for at least 10 minutes before removing the gum paste from the mold! After that, I trimmed them a little with an Xacto knife and “glued” them on the cake with sugar glue.
The exact molds that I bought for this cake are here:
- 10mm pearl molds
- Teardrop Lace Press
- Wide Scalloped Lace Border
- FMM Textured Lace Set 3
- Silicone Lace Maker
- Scalloped Narrow Lace (this is on the top tier, I used 2 strips of this with a band of fondant in between, adding some texture so it would blend together)
To add a little more fancy to the cake, I glued on sugar pearls to some parts of the lace and on the cake … I loved the way it turned out!
