how about a white fondant covered cake coated with piping gel and then put sanding sugar over the whole thing.........with the lights in a club it should definitely 'SPARKLE' big time.......or get some pixie dust and go nuts with it

Here is the pixie dust

oh wow that a great idea about the sugar! so do i just brush on the piping gel? i have never used piping gel..hehe also i want it to make a wow factor so i really don't want a one tier cake but then if i do more than one its tooo much cake cause honestly when evryone is dancing and drinking they don't exactly want cake jeje i know from experience soo mybe try a dummy cake but i don't know if topsy turvy (which i have never done) or just regular square?? help!jeje i have soo many ideas and i just need to put them all together

I recently saw a "crystal" cake on here. I think it was on a thread about old cake traditions (tuk n ruffle, fountains). They cut out a slice and covered that "hole" in sparkles and then made to appear as though the sparkles flowed out of the cake.
I'll see if I can find a picture of it.

yep just brush it on.........there is actually a cake here on CC that's decorated like that I think it's like a light green....but I can't seem to pull it up on the search engine.

here is the one with the crystal pouring out of it

Here is the green one I mentioned

here is a gorgeous white one

and last but not least a yellow one

I think if you need to use a dummy do looks gorgeous in a tiered cake design......p.s. LOVE the white with the glittery look!! Be sure and take photos at your party, bet it'll be stunning!

Thanks KHalstead, I couldn't find it to save my life. icon_biggrin.gif

The pink crystals pouring out says she used homemade rock candy as the "crystals" instead of the sanding sugar of the others. I love that yellow one!

wow girls thanks for the ideas.... i love that sugar effect it really makes it sparkly and thats exactly what i want! do you think if airbrush it first silver then add the sugar would look nice? i mean cause i like the white i just don't want it to look like a wedding cake or maybe if just add some silver details .... again too many ideas in my head!

ill def post a pic when i do it its in two weeks soo make sure to look jeje again thank you soo much for you help i love this site! and especially the people in it because without you guys don't know what i would do! jeje
