How to Create Lacework on a Wedding Cake

If you fancy having a go at creating your own edible lace for wedding cakes, there are a number of different ways to go about it. Cake decorating novices are best suited to using applique lace, individual pieces which are cast from a mould and attached to the iced cake. 

Using applique lace isn't only simpler; it's also more photogenic. It has the advantage of being heavier and looking more defined against the icing, making it really shine in your photos.

Cake experts might want to try their hand at lace piping, either using hand piping or using a floral cutter to emboss your icing before piping over the pattern. Add some ribbons and sugar flower and you have yourself a masterpiece!

If you're giving guests a slice of cake to take home, take a look at our roundup of cake slice boxes to make sure it's carried back on style.
