Suspended lace edging is emerging as one of the most popular design trends in lace wedding cake styles this year. It’s a favourite amongst leading designers because it creates an enhanced lace silhouette with a strong vintage influence.
Rachelle’s Cakes have blended two lace styles in their soft, feminine design above ( top left). Doilie lace adorns the top and bottom tiers, with a glittering lace trim suspended over the edge of the middle tier, creating an ephemeral floating effect.
Trendsetters Cotton & Crumbs have been with working with suspended lace edging in their recet designs and as always, are a strong influence in current trends. Pale gold/champagne pearl – the colour tone of the seaon – features in their design (top right), with suspended lace edging perfectly complemented by piped pearl swags and applique floral lace.
