Delicate lace detailing has long been one of the most sought-after design motifs in wedding cake art but lace styles and techniques continue to evolve in cake decorating.
One of our favourite styles of the moment is lace embellished with pearl beading, creating a stunning, bridal couture finish. Sweet Love Cake Couture capture the beauty of this style exquisitely in their luxurious lace design above, with high shine lustre creating a spectacular canvas for their lace art creation.
