The wedding cake trend for 2014 can be described in one word…LACE. Lace is nothing new in weddings. It’s always been on the dress. The bridesmaids wear it. Tablecloths are draped in it. But this year Lace Takes The Cake!
Lace adorned wedding cakes are the current trend. Edible white lace on a white cake. Or a neutral taupe color on a white cake. It's sophisticated. Many of these cakes are inspired by television and the movies.
Downton Abbey inspired cakes will have an ornate and refined style. Smooth edges, simple lace and flowers draped in monochromatic colors.
Fat Daddio's contour pans will give you the soft edge that this style cake requires.
While, The Great Gatsby style will have a vintage, and angular style. Interesting shapes, and soft colors with lace on top will achieve this style.
Fat Daddio's corner cut shaped cake pans are ideal to create this look.
Creating edible lace is simple with fondant and a few decorating tools. An impression rolling pin can give intricate designs, from swirls to diamonds to hearts. And a frill cutter will create ruffles and scalloped edges.
Finally, add lace appliques with embroidered detail with an impression cutter/stamp.
