Dainty lace wedding dress inspired cake:

Elegant Lace Cakes instructor Zoe Clark created this elegant ivory colored wedding cake inspired by the very fine details on a bride’s wedding gown. The perfect pearlescent buttons remind me of a Victorian woman’s satin kid gloves and the sweet, short ruffled tier is reminiscent of a bridal garter belt hidden under a lace wedding dress. Lovely!

Lace and floral tea party cake:

Royal icing lines mixed with fondant lace appliqué style flowers creates the look of a finely crocheted lace doily. This is perfect for an ultra girly tea party or as a bridal shower cake. The contrasting coral pink fondant allows the lacework to shine through.

Gorgeous-in-green ruffles and lace wedding cake:

Each tier of this beautiful wedding cake boasts its own decorative style, from eyelet fondant lace to the bottom tier of ruffly rosette fondant, so similar to petticoat layers a fine lady of yesteryear would wear.  The whole cake is balanced by one brightly colored sugar poppy in a burst of sunburst orange.

White fondant lace appliqué cake:

This tiered white fondant wedding cake by Craftsy member Sandra Frearson features the use of lace appliqué look molds to create a tall, simple, feminine and romantic monochromatic wedding cake. I like the idea of trying this one in a vibrant color, or even black fondant with black fondant lace molds.

Royal icing party dress inspired cake:

With a ruffly frilly skirt, a royal icing lace piped bodice, and a turquoise teal sugar rose hat, this cake looks like it’s ready to walk down the aisle. Hand piped royal icing creates an overall lace look to the cake tiers. Learn how to create your own perfectly petaled roses like these in Nicholas Lodge’s Craftsy course The Ultimate Sugar Rose.
