I need to do a cake with the "diamonds are a girls best friend" theme. I wanted to put tiny edible diamond like crystals on them .. I tried the look of the rock candy and don't really care for it.. anybody have any suggestions on what else I could use?

I really don't trust putting the little rhinestones on the cake as I don't know if there will be kids that could possibly consume them icon_sad.gif

Thanks for your help icon_smile.gif

Oh yes I am enclosing the look that I would like to achieve icon_smile.gif

Hi,
When I saw the firs part of your question I immediately thought Rock candy as well. Do you think you could do the rock candy again, but this time paint it with the silver shimmer dust. The liquid mixture of a bit of alcohol and a bit of the dust. Try that, thats all i can possibly think of.

Christi,

FancyFlours has edible jewels! They are very cool, I don't know if they're a bit pricey for what you want or if you can add the cost in.

Also, what I was thinking of doing, because I don't make money from cakes but LOVE those jewels is making my own. Global Sugar Art has molds for them, but the small ones are out of stock right now icon_cry.gif I was planning on using Isomalt or just melted sugar in them. Just search "gem" and then go near the bottom. The set 2 is the smaller set. It's so cool!

Hope I helped.


Here, I found the link: and they're back in stock! But I already spent my cake toy budget for the month icon_rolleyes.gif

Sorry to hijack the thread but, I have those stinkin cute molds but...
how would I use melted sugar/isomalt to make them look like real jewels? I made some gumpaste ones and painted with pearl and silver but they didn't quite look like diamonds icon_rolleyes.gif

laurynrn,
I was just thinking I would spray them with Pam or something and then melt the isomalt according to the directions I found online and pour and wait. lol. I hadn't thought it through all that much.
If you try it, please let me know!
