Lace Wedding Cakes
Lace implies romance, drama and tradition; it also has a vintage flair to it. All things vintage seems to be quite the hit this year. Lace has become a favorite element for brides-to-be and cake designers. It was only a matter of time before vintage styles made their way into the world of sugar paste and buttercream. One way to add just a touch of vintage to a modern wedding is to incorporate lace on your wedding cake.
Your cake can mimic the look of vintage floral fabrics, such as your grandmother’s heirloom lace or your favorite thrift-store find. It can be made with appliqués of sugar-paste flowers, inspired by the design on a vintage blouse that seems to be sewn on. Another beautiful option can be piped royal-icing blossoms that suggest embroidered accents.
Incorporating the lace design of your wedding dress can also add a real feminine beauty to your cake. Lace wedding cakes are pretty, chic, and no-less delicious. Which of the cakes below is your favorite?
