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.
- Lace mould
- Edelweis/edible dusting powder from Squire Kitchen
- 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 .
