Apparently, I cannot order dragees because I'm in Florida. I was on a website looking at pearl / bead making molds but it looks like they make strands. The tools they had for individual pearls required hand rolling each pearl. Is there an easier way to make a lot of uniformly sized pearls without hand rolling each one?

I don't know how you would make them without rolling them individually, but this technique will certainly give uniform pearls.

Looks like you are going to be busy, busy, busy rolling and rolling!
They are easy to make just a bit time consuming. You can do it while watching TV in one evening.

I still say buy them. Pearls are not exactly the same as the metalic dragees. I've never heard of the pearls being banned.

To get a uniform size, roll out the paste and cut the number required out with the round end of an icing tube, that way they will all be the same size when you roll them.

I live in So. California and they are banned in this state. Someone sued and you can no longer buy them hear as ediable. My cake shop sells them but sells them as inediable. THey can not even be shipped to california. He has to go to another state and drive them here. Some issue with the lead content and how many pounds are consumed.
