Five-Tier Wedding Cake with Fondant and Lace Appliques and Red Peonies

Lace is synonymous with romance, so it's no wonder so many brides gravitate toward lace gowns for their wedding day. But white lace is for so much more than your walk down the aisle—the delicate, feminine fabric can inspire everything from your invitation pattern to, of course, your wedding cake. From intricately piped royal-icing designs and hand-painted lace to you'll-swear-they're-real lace stencils, there are a myriad of ways to translate lace onto your wedding dessert. Because of the intricate detail and craftsmanship that goes into a lace-decorated cake, you can also rest assured that no two lace wedding cakes will look the same — you're guaranteed to get a unique show-stopping treat that is all your own for your big day. We love the fresh take on floral that A. Elizabeth Cakes took with its watercolor washed wedding cake, while Francesca Neves Cupcake's whimsical mint and coral pink tiers wrapped with a lace sugar veil have us dreaming of a springtime celebration. Prefer something ultra classic and feminine? You'll fall in love with Yum Dessert Décor's structured confection of all-white tiers, which are livened up with an ever-so-slight peek of beige and differing designs of lace. If you're like us, and have become totally enamored with the trend of lace wedding cakes, then prepare to be amazed by these striking confections.
