I’m only commenting to follow this thread because I am interested! I hate the taste of fondent and love the look of lace. I hope you get some great ideas!

I am not sure how it would be technically possible, but I hope that by some way it is. Have you talked with any bakers about the look?

There are a ton of pictures of lace cakes if you search over in theknot.com galleries

@beachchicbride: I’m glad I’m not the only one who hates fondent! I am the person at the wedding who pulls off the fondent and eats the rest. If you happen to talk to a baker, can you update if it is possible to do a buttercream only cake with lace piping?

It’s absolutely possible to get a fondant-free cake with lace piping. The black and white cake posted by Pickel was the inspiration picture I showed my baker. My cake will be three-tiered instead, with pearlized butter cream, black lace piping, and some of the flowers in the lace will be sage green. I also hate fondant, and my bakery charges more for a fondant cake, so I was pretty relieved when I found out we could get buttercream.

Here are two items to check out on the Internet.

I do not like the traditional fondant but, I do like marshmallow fondant.  You would be surprised how tasty it is and how pliable it is. 

Also, there is a produce called “Sugar Veil” which is a confectionary icing that can be used to make amazing lace and other decorations for a cake. 

Maybe your baker would be willing to use these icing techniques for your cake.  I’m no expert, but I do like to bake.

There is nothing tasty about any kind of fondant – and I don’t eat marshmellow anything because gelatin makes my stomach queasy -___- I like the idea of the intricate white on white piping to look like lace! Thanks for sharing these pics guys!
