livcurious:  I’ve seen that cake before.  I think that lace is just piped on.  They did the shape outline first, and then filled it in with a smaller tip.

edepp2010:  I have a question since we’re talking about lace cakes…What did they use for the lace on the purple layers of this cake?  I looked also and was unable to find any molds or cutters to even come close to this pattern….Also what did they use to get that purple metallic looking?

livcurious:  It should be very easy to replicate, you just need to find a baker that is known for piping. And since piping is more of a traditional technique, you will likely have more luck if you stay away from newer bakeries with younger pastry chefs. Stick to bakeries that are well established. Just shop around, it’ll be easy to find. 

sjp6615:  Hey, happy to help! So, I doubt that the lace pattern is an aplique, because the strings would break when you would lift the lace onto the cake. My guess is that they cut out the flowers, placed them on the cake, then went back with royal icing to attach the flowers together, and to add detail to the flowers to make them look cohesive. The purple is just dark purple fondant that has either been airbrused with a mixture of luster dust and vodka or has been brushed with the same mixture. You’ll want to find a bakery that works with fondant.
