How to make fondant lace

Made primarily of sugar and water, fondant is often used for a decorative coating on cakes and cupcakes. The claylike consistency of fondant makes it possible to bend and mould it into almost any shape. A popular choice for wedding cakes is fondant lace, as it adds a elegant appearance. While it may appear that it takes a highly-skilled hand to produce fondant lace, it's possible for even the most amateur cake decorator to get good results.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Rolling pin
  • Fondant lace mould
  • Fondant cutter

  1. 1

    Roll the fondant flat with a rolling pin. Fondant lace should be thin for the best appearance, no more than 1/8 inch / 3mm thick.

  2. 2

    Lay the sheet of fondant on top of a lace mould. Press down firmly with the palms of your hands to keep the fondant in place.

  3. 3

    Roll the fondant with the rolling pin to get an even lace impression from the mould.

  4. 4

    Flip the mould over so the fondant is against the work surface. Pull the mould away from the fondant.

  5. 5

    Trim any excess fondant off the sides of the lace impressions. A fondant cutter works well for this, but you can use a knife.
