Vintage Lace Wedding Cake with Sugar Roses
It’s late, late rigth now (or very early morning to be more precise) and I can’t sleep. Between the daylight savings time thing (does anybody else need like a month to adapt to that?) and staying up til 3am several nights in a row working on cake last week – I just cannot seem to get my body on track with “normal” sleep hours.
So, since I’m up – I thought I’d roll out a blog post for ya!
I’ve done this design three times I think … and I never get tired of this classic Vintage Lace Wedding Cake with Sugar Roses. I won’t bore you with all the details since I’ve shared them before here.
If I forgot anything in that post, still feel free to ask, but I shared links for all of the lace molds and pearl molds and all that good stuff. There is one difference between that cake and this one… the roses.
The first time I made the Vintage Lace Cake – I made the roses myself. And I’m not gonna lie… it was hard! Sugar roses are not my specialty and I really struggled with them on that cake.
In fact, I initially ordered some gum paste roses from Etsy but I was so disappointed with the ones I got that I decided to make them myself. And I was disappointed… again. They turned out okay and everybody (except me) loved them… but still.
This time around, I totally decided to order them again – but this time from Wholesale Sugar Flowers.
Another cake decorator friend had raved about the quality of flowers from there and because of how slow I am at making them, I knew I could save my bride some money (and myself some heartache) if I ordered them vs. tried to make them again. This time… I was really, really pleased!
Anywho… the setting for this reception was beautifully decorated with lots of lace and white lights and white thin fabrics… I wish my pictures had been more reflective! The whole setting was just so classic and beautiful!
One last thing – the cake was was white almond sour cream for the top and bottom tiers, then vanilla in the middle. It was filled and frosted with vanilla buttercream, then covered and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant. The lace and pearls were also homemade marshmallow fondant and the flowers… gum paste.
