I’m not sure where to buy the lace, but it doesn’t look attached.  I would say to measure the circumference of the cupcake, and either glue, tape or sew the lace into collars that the cupcake can just slip into.

Very pretty BTW!

I think that is lace edging which can generally be bought at most stores where you purchase material or crafts.I would stitch the lace together with a couple of stitches.. Good luck x

@FutureMrsRR:  It looks like 2″ wide lace ribbon. If you Google image “lace ribbon,” you’ll see that some have scalloped edges.

I would just get some lace ribbon -personally I would get a job lot off ebay so you had lots of different bits and peices and not matching – but that’s my style. I would ask your cake person how big the widest part of the cupcake could be – so the diameter at the TOP of the cake case thing and then cut bit of ribbon to these dimensions and lightly sew together at the seam. If you’re not confident about your sewing ability/making it look nice by having to sew all the way up the seam I would just sew a little pearl (or covered) button on one side and then do a loop of emroidery thread on the otherside so that you can button them otgether over the cupcakecases like a cute little sleeve. Or maybe adapt it to be like this and use a weenie flower to cover the sewing: http://krishenkavintagetreasures.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/vintage-lace-candle-sleeve.html

I’m the owner of the Etsy shop mentioned above. 🙂 Do you have an email address where I can contact you? I’d like to help.

@FutureMrsRR:  You could also use double sided tape.  This will be easier than a lot of people using 1 or 2 glue guns.  You can cut the lace ribbon into strips, on an angle to accommodate both the wider and narrower dimensions of the cup cake size.

Make a template out of cardboard for the sizing.  Then just cut strips of double sided tape and keep them all ready.  When the cup cakes arrive you can divde them among your helpers and all you have to do is remove the protective covering on the double sided tape and stick it down.

Great idea!!
