Hi ALL!
I am making a very small (like 20 people) wedding cake for my best friends's mother's wedding at the end of the month. She is having a "Bling Bling" wedding and wants to have rhinestones/crystals on the cake. I am pretty sure that I can probably find them at the craft store, or we also just got a swarovski crystal store in a new mall. I guess it will just depend on how much she wants to spend on them.

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone else here has ever done anything like this before. Since it is for a small family wedding, she assures me she isn't worried about anyone eating them. I am just not sure how to stick them to the fondant. I am assuming that RI will probably hold them just fine.

So if you have any ideas about this or advice I would love the feedback!

Take Care,
Breanna

Well, I've done it. And of course they aren't edible, but if you instruct the person to have them removed, and if it is a friend, it should be OK.

I did mine with RI-worked perfect! Here is the cake, if you need an example. HTH!

There are also edible crystals that you can purchase to put on the cakes...there was a forum topic related to this...if you are at all worried about not all of the crystal being removed.

I would say that you would attach them the same as if they were dragees... Royal icing should work fine.

I would use piping gel in a bag so that you don't see anyicing where you attatched them.
