Learn how to create breathtakingly beautiful lace cakes for weddings and romantic occasions with this definitive guide to lace cake decorating techniques from international cake decorating guru Zoe Clark.
In Elegant Lace Cakes, Zoe takes you step-by-step through creating her signature style cake designs, which feature delicate and detailed sugar lace on cakes using a range of sugarcraft techniques.
Through 12 stunning cake decorating projects, Zoe explores innovative new products such as Sugarveil and Cake Lace, as well as more established techniques for creating lace effects on cakes including applique with fondant icing, and piping and brushwork with royal icing.
The sensational lace cake designs included range from classic whites and pretty pastels to bolder Burlesque-inspired colourways. Each main cake is presented alongside a smaller spin-off idea, showing you how the effects can also be applied to cookies, mini cakes and fondant fancies to complement the theme.
