Share on Pinterest
For hundreds of years, lace has been gracing the gowns of blushing brides and adding elegant detail to fabrics and festivities.  Now we can find its delicate beauty on cakes, too.  Here are some of our favorite examples of how this artistic expression can add design and decadence to any cake.

You can add lacework accents to a wedding cake in a traditional manner, or try something more unique.  Black lace is truly bold and eye-catching, especially on this floral wedding cake.  Three tiers of contrasting black and white make this cake a memorable focal point.  Interior fillings were just as dazzling as the exterior, and included red velvet with vanilla Italian meringue, and vanilla with raspberry chambord buttercream.  If  you’re anxious to try some of our flavors yourself, check out some of the delicious cakes we have available at our retail location, Pink Cake Box Boutique!

Speaking of Jenny Orsini, we worked with her again when we designed this incredible five-tiered wedding cake for comedian and actor, Tracy Morgan.  Edible sugar lace and over 1500 sugar flowers were just some of the reasons this cake was so spectacular.  At over five feet tall, it was a sight to behold!

Another example of subtle lace accents is this 4-tiered wedding cake featuring organza ribbon and lace appliqués.  The appliqués add a soft, delicate touch to the cake and can even be designed to mimic the pattern of a bride’s dress.
