One of the most exciting cake trends of the past few years has been to return to elegant and classic styling in wedding cakes including Lace Wedding Cakes. This is not simply a roll out of old design ideas, but recognition that there is a place for the detailed designs and piping skills that were beginning to die out in the cake world…and might have been lost forever.
However, as most modern wedding cakes are made of sponge cake or partly of sponge, these do not have a long “shelf life”. As a result, cake designers cannot afford to spend days decorating cakes with intricate royal iced piping.
But…whenever there is a challenge, someone will try and solve it…so a number of manufacturers have created products that allow cake designers to produce intricate designs that do not require days of setting and drying, and so are suitable for more modern cake needs. Of these, the one we love the most is Edible Lace!
Edible lace perfectly captures the recent lace and vintage styling trends in wedding cakes. Whether piped or moulded, this specialist icing allows brides to choose delicately patterned cakes that capture the traditional elegance of classic cakes, but in a modern way! Just like fabric lace, it can be draped or wrapped around cakes to give depth to a design, or add a finishing touch.
Here are two new designs from our collection using cake lace:
