Lace????

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

 

I desperately need help getting a lace effect on a small cake. I don't have any molds and I don't have the time to order online....Any advice would help please...

 

PS I tried the Cricut Cake and it was a nightmare!!

 

 

Thank you all in advance

Is there a perticular design you *must* copy?  You can pipe it directly on a cake.   If you are just wanting a lacy look try cornelli lace...it is very easy tp pipe all over a cake. Here are a couple of examples:  http://cdn.cakecentral.com/3/3b/100x100px-ZC-3b2fefdb_modulescopperminealbumsuserpics10037102_bday.jpeg

If it must be a certain deisgn can you get a piece of that design in real fabric?  Then you can use it as a pattern pressed against a well-dried b'cream, then pipe over it.

Google lace fabric and then pipe a similar design onto the cake with royal icing?

Also some lace can leave the right imprint on your cake. If you have some lace you can harvest for this project like Kakeladi recommends--check the closet and dresser--curtain? tablecloth?  old wedding dress? belt from vintage dress? Test first on a pan or on the table top. Place clean lace on crusted icing. Take some different color icing and spread it over the top--remove lace--hopefully the design remains. Also test it by waiting 5 mins before removing.

 

Or lay the lace down and spray some spray can food color --start and stop off the cake-- just breeze the stream of color over over  the cake. Don't stay stationary with the spray. Don't point at the cake to start or stop. Different laces provide different effects--just gotta see whacha got & what combination will work.

 

If you are fondanting the cake test and see if you get a lace design by pressing the lace into the fondant with a rolling pin. then carefully apply to cake so you dnt' rub out the design or just use thin pieces of the impressed fondant in a patchwork design--or cut them in scallop shapes and apply to the cake like swags. Between the patchwork pieces pipe small netting designs--just snatches of small crossword puzzle type designs that looks like the netting that lace is applied too.

 

Say none of this comes out well defined enough no problem--use it anyway and overpipe it.

 

I don't know how well you pipe--you could get the netting look with a pointed skewer and just draw it on fondant--hey a meat tenderizer has that kind of effect too. Use it freshly rolled fondant--after it sets up it won't take the design.

 

There's brush embroidery too google it if you're a piper.

 

You'll get there.
