I have ultimately decided on a wedding cake with a lace like theme. Maybe even one inspired after my dress.
I am curious to see the different style lace cakes that you bees have used or will use in your wedding. So if you can please show me some pics I would really enjoy it.
ETA: Fiance and I hate the taste of fondant so we do not want that on our wedding cake. But if you have a pic of a cake that did use fondant and can easily be made without please post too 🙂 I love looking at all cakes.
Thanks in advance ladies.

@takemyhand: Me too! I had a cake made with fondant for my birthday and I absolutely hated it as did everyone else who was there! I definitely do not want cake disappointment with my wedding.

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?

I have a baker but have yet to talk about this specifically but plan on doing so tomorrow. I hope it is possible. I know that it would be really hard to do though!
I saw this picture (on another thread i think) and think that this is something that I would be willing to go with and it doesn’t look like fandant to me. But I could most certainly be wrong.
ETA: I would not be using flowers as the topper.

@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.

@ItWasntMe: Wow those cakes are absolutely gorgeous! I especially love the first too! THanks for the pics!
@bearlove: Thanks for the advice I will have to check their gallery. So far I have only been doing google searches.
@Pickel: Such a pretty cake! Thanks for the pic 🙂
@Jenlon: Its so comforting to know now that I can get the style I want with Buttercreme! Thanks for posting, I loved the pics.
@takemyhand: I’m that person too! I don’t like anything about it and pull it off as soon as I get it. And I will update after I talk to my baker now after reading some more recent posts on this thread.
@McVerde: Nice to know that hating fondent saves money! That’s always a plus 😉
@SiriusOne: Thanks for the advice! I am definitely going to talk to my baker about thses options.
Sadly my baker had a family emergency and was unavailable today becuase of it so I will talk to her next week hopefully *fingers crossed*

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!
