Lace Wedding Cakes

These include traditional hand-piping (using royal icing), stencils and hand-cut appliques, all of which produce different but equally beautiful results. It is often possible to combine several techniques depending on the type of lace that is used as inspiration. This adds an interesting dimension to the design and can really take a wedding cake to another level.
Over the past few years I have designed many wedding cakes using different lace techniques. I work closely with each of my couples and design their bespoke wedding cake according to their personal taste and preferences. Here are some of my favourite lace-inspired cakes:
