Textured Effects: Embossed Lace

lace embossing textured wedding cakes by Sweet Love Cake Couture, Australia

Textured effects in fondant is one of the most alluring design styles of the moment and we particularly love textured effects created with lace embossing.

It also happens to be a super simple way of adding extra depth and ornamentation to a design by simply impressing a lace embosser or mat onto a freshly covered fondant cake tier while the fondant is still soft.

One of the most beautiful textured effects for wedding cake design in particular is lace texturing/embossing. Sweet Love Cake Couture demonstrates this perfectly in the exquisite trio above – a picture perfect display of femininity and elegance, with gorgeous tiers of textured embossing, mixed with layers of pearls, faded gold and stylish sugar flowers.

Below, another of Sweet Love Cake Couture’s designs blends beautiful lace embossing with a garden of sugar flowers, pansies and roses and ethereal butterflies for an outstanding special occasion cake.
