Brush Embroidery Lace Wedding Cake

Many brides ask us to replicate the lace pattern on their gown. Of course, there are many ways in which you can do this on a cake, but one way is brush embroidery. We used it on this Rustic Elegant wedding cake back in October 2010. It gives a very elegant, almost-sewn look to the pattern. Want to try it?

-Here's a tutorial by Wilton.

This time, however, the cake was covered in white fondant and the brush embroidery was also done with white buttercream. White on white is pretty, but you lose some of the details so I went back and outlined the pattern again with white buttercream to add some definition.

The wedding reception was held outdoors at Haile Plantation Golf & Country Club. *Notice the golfer in the background. I'm sure he was gone before the wedding started.*
