If you’re searching for cake inspiration, you may need only to look as far as your own wedding gown. Not only is lace irredeemably associated with all things wedding, it also offers beautifully intricate patterns that are alluring to look at, making it a wonderful design option for sophisticated wedding cakes. And if your bridal gown features lace, you have a go-to pattern on which to model your cake design.
Make no mistake that the art of recreating the complex patterns of lace requires the talents of a premier cake designer, but when done correctly, the results can be breathtaking. The same types of lace that are popular with brides – Guipure, Alençon, and Chantilly lace – are among the most textured, adding depth to your cake design as well as decoration.
Take a close look at the collection of lace-patterned cakes from real weddings below, and see if you’re inspired to incorporate your wedding gown’s main embellishment into your own cake design.
