Can anyone give me tips on making this. I am considering using it for my brother's wedding cake in combination with gumpaste roses. I have only heard about it once before. Please help.

What is cake jewelry? It sounds interesting but I've never seen it.

Anyway, here's a bump. Maybe someone else can help.

something like this perhaps? This jewelry is made out of gumpaste. I'm taking her class in April.

I was watching TV and found a website that has Swarovski crystals to stick into cakes.

The stuff is very pretty.

The info isn't on this specific design but here is the link to what I found.

Maybe we should ask sweet-as-tisse to do a tutorial on this. Her work is so beautiful!

Wow Ladies,

I have been combing the site for several weeks trying to get inspirations for my MIL's 75th birthday.
She is a snob and extremely picky. The jewels (edible candy) that you linked on this site is fabulous. I have ordered 2 colours and will apply them in some sort of fashion.
Thank you thank you thank you. I am so close to getting my brain in line with a design.
One day when I am on the computer upstairs I will upload some of my photos. That one will be included when I get to it.
Thanks again.

Hi cake-angel

i just found this thread, i noticed my lilies and cake jewelry..

to make the jewelry like i do, is very easy and simple. i buy jewelry wire in two different gauges along with what ever glass beads i need ( like pink clear or pearls).. i just play around until i come up with something that i like,

i use the very thin wire to thread the beads onto then attach this to the thicker wire by twisting it around until it holds.

its just something that you need to experiment with until you work out what works best for you... well thats all i did anyway...

sorry if i haven't been much help but i am not real good at explaining

most of the things i come up with i just make up as i go

I just had a look and wouldn't you know it! the god dam wire doesn't have the gauge size on it (it was on the packet but that went in the from memory the thicker wire is normally 18 to 20 gauge but it is called jewelry wire that is coiled... same for the thinner one and that gauge is normally 26 to 28 gauge....

i can confirm these for you if you want, just may be another day or so before i get a chance to get to the shops...

I don't know if this will help, its a photo of the wire i use..

As soon as I get a chance to get to the shops i will let you know what size the gauges are....

Thank you!!! I have purchased some wire but I would still love to know the guages you use when you have time. No rush.

Oh awesome!! That was close to what I guessed. I think I have both of those (and a couple of other guages too). Now I just need to find the right beads for the wedding colors. I hope they go on sale soon. Some of the beads are very expensive!
