I went through the entire blog and I couldn't find which lace molds she used. There are a lot of them out there. Do you know what you used?

It is a a beautiful cake. You did a fantastic job. If the puckering has happened on other cakes, I two would email Sharon and see if see has encountered it before.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I did end up emailing Sharon and she recommends hi ratio shortening and keeping it out of direct air conditioning / heat vent which may be drying out the frosting too much. I bake and then crumb coat and let it sit overnite before frosting. This happens as the frosting sits and dries. Go figure?! I will order some online...or...I may just try Cammie's recipe to see if adding the country crock margerine makes a difference.

Sorry cakedejour. I was not being intentionally vague. On this blog, Rose actually details (with pictures) each of the lace molds and gives a link on how to get there: See if you can copy and paste this link in your browser:
http://rosebakes.com/elegant-lace-wedding-cake/

She then says "The exact molds that I bought for this cake are here:

?10mm pearl molds
?Teardrop Lace Press
?Wide Scalloped Lace Border
?FMM Textured Lace Set 3
?Silicone Lace Marker
?Scalloped Narrow Lace

Here are the urls to two of the molds I bought. - hope this helps too. Let me know!

Cakedujour: ....and here is the url to the third mold I bought:

All in all, I used three molds for my cake, cutting them at different points and using them right side up, upside down, etc. Good luck!

Thanks, jabrotz. I've been debating about which molds I want to buy and when I see a cake I like (like yours) it helps to narrow down the choices, especially if I see a particular mold used in a few cakes that I like. Thanks for the links! One of them is now on my "for sure" list. :-)

Thanks, cakedejour and hope you are able to find exactly what you need. They are so expensive...but if you use them in different ways, you can get a lot of 'mileage' out of just a couple.
