There are flowers and colours associated with most wedding anniversaries; however, the 39th anniversary doesn't have a special bloom or hue connected to it. Lace is the material that symbolises 39 years of marriage, so if you're in charge of bringing the cake to the anniversary celebration, there are a few creative ways to use the lace image on the dessert impressively.
Lace Number Cake
Bake a cake for the couple in the shape of a heart, and create the numbers 3 and 9 out of fondant to place on top of the iced cake. Before adding the edible digits on the cake, use an edible lace stencil to create decorative holes and designs in the numbers to stick to the anniversary's lace theme. Or, purchase cake pans in the shape of the numbers, and cover the cake in white or off-white fondant. Use fondant in a darker colour, like royal blue or even black, to create the "lace" to cover the numbers and add contrast to the cake.
Lace and Flowers
Combine the prettiness of lace and flowers for a 39th anniversary cake for a dessert that fits the occasion's tradition. Visit your local bakery to find a tiered cake like the one featured at the guests of honor's wedding reception, and ask that the cake be coloured in white or ivory fondant, followed by fondant that is shaped to look like lace. Add a romantic element to the cake by adding the bride's favourite flowers to the anniversary confection, like fondant tiger lilies or tulips for a pleasant pop of colour.
Lace Frame Cake
Take a photo of the couple from their wedding day or a previous anniversary to your local bakery to have the photo transferred onto the anniversary cake. Ask the cake decorator to create an icing frame for the top of the dessert, adorned to resemble a lace picture frame. Request that the cake be covered in fondant in one of the couple's original wedding or reception colours for an attractive cake that will bring back pleasant memories for the "bride and groom."
Lace Pound Cake
Bake a pound cake for a small 39th anniversary celebration, in the same flavour as the cake the couple had for their wedding. Use a thin tip on your icing pipe to create skinny stripes in both vertical and horizontal directions to resemble lace all around the cake. Accent the dessert to signify the season when the couple were married. For instance, place slices of red and green apples around the cake, and dye the "lace" icing in a shade of hunter green or pumpkin orange to symbolise the fall season.
