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!
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.
