Using real lace or fondant lace with impression mat

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
My neighbour's daughter is giving me a lot of creative freedom with her wedding cake though she has requested lace border on the 2 of the 4 tiers. She gave me actual lace and said to use it if I wanted...but it's pure white and I don't think it will look nice with the off-white fondant. I have no experience making lace with molds or impression mats and wondered if anyone could share some tips with me? I have a few more weeks and want to practice. Thank you!

Im not sure why she gave you real lace? But if you have a lace mat you can use that just lay it over your fondant and use your rolling pin and roll over it , it should work.Also you could use the plastic placemats that look like lace you can find them at Dollar Trees and maybe at Micheals,
Hope this helps

You can make a temporary inexpensive mold or texture mat by using Model Magic and the lace. It will last a while but will eventually dry out and break. It would last until you finished the cake though.

Where can you get Model Magic?

You can buy Model Magic at Michaels, Joann Fabrics, Walmart - just about anywhere that sells craft supplies. The smaller amounts come in resealable bags.

Thank you. I've looked at Michaels and could not find any food safe putty at mine. I will try Joann's or Walmart. Thanks again.

Look in the children's craft area. Near the Crayola stuff.

Oh, okay. Yeah I didn't look there at all! Is it food safe?

Not 100% sure. I have heard of others using it. I only make faux cakes so I don't have to worry about people eating the items that come from the molds.

I saw a video on Yummy Arts where they made a lace mold with Model Magic.
The cake was called Lavender and Lace.
