lacemoulds

Hi everyone, hope all is well.
Today I will continue my “The making of a wedding cake” series. This time I will show you how to create a masterpiece of a cake. It takes almost no effort at all, and still gives the cake the “wow-effect”.

Before moving on to the cake decorating, I just want to mention that I’ll be at the “Hembakat” baking fair in Uppsala, Sweden, this weekend. Come by and say hi if you happen to be in the area!

I love to decorate cakes in a simple way, and these silicone moulds are just perfect.

The silicone molds I use here are from Global Paf Molds and Karen Davies.

The largest lace mold used here is called Silicone Mold/New Elegant Lace MOLD 025. I got it from etsy.com.

I also use Rose Vintage Lace Border Mould By Karen Davies. I got this from thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk.

Isn’t this marzipan lace just beautiful? It looks so real, and I promise it’s not hard to make.

Equipment:

  • Lace mould
  • Edelweis/edible dusting powder from Squire Kitchen
  • Brush
  • Marzipan or sugarpaste

Start by brushing edible dusting powder onto mold.

Roll out the marzipan or sugarpaste and place into mold.

Press down firmly. You can use a rolling pin or smoother for this.

You can place the mold in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to make it easier to release the marzipan later.

Turn mold upside-down and gently peel the marzipan from the mold.

Brush the backside with a little water and carefully attach to the cake.

If making a large cake you will probably need two of these.

I also made marzipan pearls for this cake, using a silicone pearl mold, 3 mm.

Brush the mold with edible dusting powder, I used Edelweiss from Squire Kitchen. Make a thin marzipan rope and press into the pearl cavities. You can use a smoother for this. Freeze for 5 minutes before releasing pearls from the mold. Attach pearls to the cake with a little water or edible glue.

Next time I will show you how to make beautiful sugar roses, perfect for decorating wedding cakes. Stay tuned!

Have a great day you all .

  1. I’ve been searching for just these molds to make my son’s wedding cake, and- here they are! Thanks so much for sharing the info. What a gorgeous cake!

  2. I wonder if you could help- I just received the larger of the molds (above) and notice the ends arent made to match up. Since most cakes will require more than one length to go around a cake, how do you make it look seemless? Thank you.

      Hi Karen, that depends on the molds as you say. If you find the seam is too visible, you can cover with pretty sugar pearls or other decorations.
