French Lace

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake This cake was inspired by a Liancarlo bridal gown covered in French Lyon Lace. I made a silicon mold of the lace sample I received from the designer in order to recreate edible lace to match the gown perfectly. In my Cake Design Made Simple: The Wedding Dress class you will learn how to make your own custom molds and how to go about getting lace from the designers.

What you will need

  • Fondant
  • Modeling Chocolate

Q&A with Rachael Teufel

KristaJohnson asked:
Do you make your own lace designs or if you make them, how do you know what to make? Do you have a rule for how many to use? Do you go by a rule on how much cake to cover when you to a trailing design? Thanks!
Rachael Teufel answered:
Hi Krista! I this class I teach you how to make the silicon molds. You do need to provide your own lace. If you are matching the lace to the bride's gown you can often get a swatch from the bridal salon, the designer, or simply from any alterations. THe number of pieces used is really dependent on how big the pieces are and how much coverage you need on the cake... no special formula. I do sell a handful of lace molds on my facebook page, including the lace you see on this cake. .https://www.facebook.com/intricateicingscakedesign/app_251458316228
Garden Baker asked:
Hi Rachael. This class intrigues me, not because I am planning to do a wedding cake, but because of the techniques that you teach. Just wondering is all the lace appliques in the class are made from molds or if there are methods taught in this class for doing lace "from scratch".
Rachael Teufel answered:
Thank you! I actually teach how to make your own silicon molds. You would need to supply the real lace and mold materials in order to make the mold. This is a great skill to learn because you can then make any lace mold you'd like, among other things using the basic principles. There are a ton of general tips and tricks in this class as well. :) Here is a 50% off link should you choose to join me in this class! http://bit.ly/CakeDesignMadeSimpleTheWeddingDress
