I know I'm terrible at updating...this have been crazy busy the past couple of weeks are there are some exciting things happening at The Sweet Life! And with our first Spring wedding taking place this past weekend already things aren't going to slow down anytime soon. But I wanted to continue the blog series on current cake trends and the one I'll be featuring this time around is Lace Cakes. I love lace cakes. They lend the perfect amount of class, tradition and style to any cake, and for any occasion.
Both of these cakes ares so romantic, the single tiered one would be a great addition to a dessert table. Photo credits: Beige lace and mini lace.
These two are definitely more traditional and romantic, the lace is so intricate and the white on white is perfect for a romantic celebration. Adding a touch of pink with some flowers is a great way to add interest and a pop of color! (Image source)
This one is a more modern take on the lace trend, the gold painted lace wraps will no doubt make a statement at any celebration, especially paired with a feminine blush pink, in the form of horizontal stripes or borders or delicate flowers. (Source)
This is another lace cake with a touch of modern Victorian class. All of the intricate molds, swags, brooches and pearls play into making this cake a modern romantic statement. This would look great at a venue with lots of history or intricate molding, such as the Hotel Blackhawk's Gold Room.
This cake goes to show that lace isn't just for weddings, although this lace cake would be a fun spin for a colorful wedding cake! But I think it would be perfect for a little girl's tea party or a bridal shower! (source)
Again, this cake would be great for a multitude of celebrations. Anything from a bridal shower to a wedding. Less is more with this lovely confection, and making the base icing a light lavender is a wonderful way to add interest without adding cost! (source)
And I will leave you with this gorgeous cake from my cake idol at Sweet & Saucy Shop. The gold, the lace, the flowers all make this cake an undeniable show stopper. Romantic, yet modern and full of class, you can't go wrong with lace.
