Fancy Border need to know !'!!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have a cake in 1 week and I have a picture of it but it's not very big. It is a cake in our Safeway bakery that is called Chantilly lace. BEAUTIFUL> The only thing is I can't see the border very well. Does anyone have one of these and can you help me? I even used a magnifing glass but I'm just not sure. I want to make it as exact as possible (but close would be good!!!) Thanks for the HELP!!!!!!

The picture might help us figure out what design you need.

It's is Chantilly Lace. That is the name of the cake. I will try to post a picture . It is the bottom border that I can't see. Thanks for all the help. My Husband said if I can't see it they cant either. So close is good enough.
I say exact is better but if I have to I'll take close. I hope the picture turnes out. New at this adding pictures thing

I think it looks like a fondant lace cutout for the border.Whichever it is a very pretty cake. It also looks like there are some swiss dots above the border

I have the Lace Mold for the top but the bottom I need the help. What are swiss Dots? I thought they were hearts above the bottom border. What is the bottom border made with?
Is it shells with a ruffel around it or a small zig zag maybe? Possibly another small row of shells?

Ok... I found it! I went to an old wilton wedding book and there is was! They use a shell border ( in one pic a tip 30 and another a tip 22) Then they use a ziz zag arch over each one using a tip 14. It deffinately looks like swiss dots over that. Swiss dots are just small dots in groups of three. Hope this helps!

It's in a book called teh Wilton Book of Wedding Cakes. It's from 1971. I got it from ebay for $2.00. Glad I could help you. I think I'd practice on a cake pan or dummy to get it just the way you want before doing it on the real cake. Make sure to post a pic when you're done!

It looks like someone used an impression mat to make the design. This is where you roll out fondant and then place it over the mat/mold and roll it over to make the design.

The website "Cakes by Sam" has several of them fo sale.

Good luck!
