Okay - I realized today that I'm waaaay behind on sharing cakes. I just went through all my folders and I have about 3 weeks worth of cakes to post! WOW!
This Vintage Lace Cake might be one of my most favorite of all time. Okay, okay - I know I say that a lot, but really... I did love this cake.
And it was extra special because my friend Kristen was here to watch and help me make it! Squeeeeal!
Side note... it was presented on a stump at the wedding... very rustic and pretty! I just wish I had known ahead of time (I totally dropped the ball and didn't think to ask... oops) and I'd have better coordinated the board - but it was still really neat and fit perfectly into her rustic outdoor wedding and reception!
Back to the cake... so after I filled and frosted the cakes, I covered them in homemade marshmallow fondant (MMF).
Now - the good stuff! I made the lace medallions and pearls on this cake with lace molds/presses and silicone pearl molds.
For the roses... those were not easy. I initially ordered some pre-made from Etsy, but I was sorely disappointed in the quality and they weren't as large as I needed, so I decided I'd make more of them myself.
Side note #2... the wedding was very rustic and lovely as previously stated... you can see the bulap on the table - there was also lace and burlap on many of the tables... and there were Mason Jars for the beverage (ie., picnic) table... see?
Very, very pretty stuff!
Okay, back to the roses. I followed videos on YouTube (Part 1 and Part 2 - both by Francesca) to make the roses and I was pretty happy with them. I still need lots more practice before I perfect my sugar roses, but now I know I can do them if I need to again!
Anywho - when I got all finished, I dusted all the pearls and lace with Antique Silk Luster Dust - to give it a nice shimmer and make them POP on the cake (although it's not all that obvious in pictures!).
And that's that!!
Did I miss any details? Do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
