First Communion Cake

First Communion Cake | Lil Miss Cakes

This was my first ever first communion cake. It was also my first time trying to apply some sort of lace pattern to a cake. I got a request for a lace design and although I have never done it before, I never turn down a challenge! I wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to pull this off, so I bought a few lace molds and messed around with them until I figured out exactly which one was going to work best. This one is the Cinderella Lace Mold by RVO and I used it twice to make the wide band. I believe I used gum paste in the mold since it’s firmer than fondant and I didn’t have the recommended mexican paste. The cross is made of gum paste that I covered in edible sugar pearls. The flowers are handmade peonies that I edged in gold to match the border of the cake. This was a cute cake and I can’t wait to work with more sugar lace!
