Any clever cake people out there?

Fri May 06, 2011 2:26 pm

Hi!
My very clever grandma is making my cake, and we have decided to decorate it with lace fondant. I have searched ebay and google and have found plenty of lace fondant cutters/molds, but not the right one..!

I want a mold that looks similar to the lace on the bottom of this cake:

...any ideas where I could find one?

Have you tried googling specialty cake suppliers? They may stock what you're looking for.

hahah yeh its real, I have seen similar things online, like the sugarveil system which makes edible lace,,, but this is just the nicest one ever!

I think I will have to start thinking of something a bit more realistic though =P

Hi buggy!

Found a UK cake decorating site which seems to do the lace stencils..

http://www.thecakedecoratingcompany.co. ... th=269_270

but there's also an Aussie site:

http://bakingpleasures.com.au/c24/Cake-Stencils#/

and a store on eBay...
http://stores.ebay.com.au/The-Cake-Empo ... 4340.l2568

Also a US site
http://www.icingonlinestore.com/

otherwise, just google LACE ICING MOULDS - that's how I found these three!

good luck!

Hi Ladies,

My girlfriend told me that I can pre-make my wedding cupcakes and put them in the freezer and take them out the day before to deforst them so that I don't have to stress with the baking the day before the wedding. Is it ok to put iced cupcakes in the freezer? Will they still taste ok? I've never done it or heard of that method before. Does anyone have any comments?

This is how the cupcake looks like.

In short no!!
U can put cake in the freezer (easier to model frozen cake) but I wouldn't be putting icing and decorations coz of what it will do when it thaws..

So would it be ok to pre-bake the cupcake and then take them out and ice them the day before the wedding?

I read that about cupcakes as well - yes, cupcakescream, you can pre-bake them, freeze them and only do the icing/decoration on the day before the wedding! :D

I'm doing the same - baking them the week before, and taking the day off before the wedding to do the decorating! :mrgreen:

I did that for our engagment party, the cupcakes will be fine in the freezer.

I also made batches of my buttercream icing the weekend before. I stored it in the fridge in an airtight container and it was fine. It needed a good beating with the electic beaters before i could used it, but they turned out perfect and it saved sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much time!

Buggy, try Cake Deco in Melbourne. They are the largest supplier in Australia, if they don't have it in they will order it for you.

I don't even know if Danatello is still on here, but if she is A HUGE THANK YOU, for posting those stencil outlets. There are so many that I will be buying, didn't even know they existed. And it will cut my work in half or less.

Buggy, I researched a lot on cake icing and deco while planning our wedding cake... I think that looks like hand piped royal icing on either royal or fondant icing, not a stencil / mould.

To recreate that you could find a lace pattern that you like, copy it onto tracing paper with a pencil, place the tracing paper lace pattern onto the fondant icing on the cake and rub to transfer it on. Then use that as a guide to pipe on the lace detail.

When I get home I'll find some useful links for you. Good luck!! It's so much fun to DIY your cake!

Buggy, how did you go finding a stencil. If it has been impossible, I would use real lace on the bottom tier. I have done this before, so I know that it works.
