We all commented truthfully (I did) - but don't forget she didn't ask for comments - she was so relieved that her first wedding cake was over  -  she felt comfortable sharing it with us.  If she was ashamed of it (which she has no reason to be), she probably would have asked us how to improve the next time.  But she didn't.  She didn't. 
Now you got it.  Constructive point by point helpful comments.  Not at all Snarky.  That's what this site is about and the reason it's the go to place for valid questions.  Building us up, helping out, consoling and applauding.

Ok then go to eBay and Etsy and type in lace sugar molds and it will be in English but your order will go to Hong Kong.
Bingo. And to add another kick in the shins, there are very few - if any bookings at the shows.  A lot later but never at the show where the brides are over stimulated by all the attention and things to look at.
There's a neat place on line called Global PAF Lace Molds that has a million different molds for cakes and cupcakes.  You order from them through China or Hong Kong??  I've done it three times now with great results (but used PayPal instead of my credit card - just in case).  Takes about 5 weeks to arrive but they're truly great.  They have sugar lace molds as well as impression molds.  The one shown above is definitely an impression mold mat.  Oh and ETSY has a lot of...
