I need to make a bridal shower cake and the bride wants me to try and recreate her dress. I took the idea from cc and cant wait to do it but im stumped on how to get the jewel like swirls on to the cake. icon_confused.gif I am doing a sheet cake with a fondant dress on it. I am new and dont really want to start with hot sugar and jewel molds. Any other ideas? I saw jewels on but i dont think she wants to spend and extra $30 on jewels. Please help!!! I attached the picture of the dress for you to see. Thanks.

I would just pipe the swirls and use fondant cutouts for the flower shapes. At least that's what I think I see inthe pic.

I'm thinking I'd mold them out of fondant and paint them with a combo of silver and pearl luster dust.

I would pipe them onto waxed paper and sprinkle with sparkling sugars or luster dust and transfer to the cake. The crinkles at the neckline of the dress you could do with a fork dragging thru the BC.

Thanks for all the great tips!! No wonder why im addicted to CC. The dress will be made from fondant so will the fork method work if i just indent instead of drag?

Yes, that should work.
