Hi, I am making a wedding cake for my husbands aunt (who is kind of picky). She wants it completely ivory, ugh, with small flowers around the sides of the cake. She wanted a buttercram shell border...but I talked her into doing a pearl border. I want to brush the border to make it look shiny, kind of like real pearls but I am unsure which dust to use, luster, pearl, petal. I am confused!! Also I am unsure about the molds to use for the border. What size, etc. How big about is a 12 mm pearl mold? I have no clue and don't want to order the wrong one. Oh and do dragees work well for the center of small flowers? They are on the smaller side and I have never used dragees before. Apparently I am doing all kinds of things I have never done before on this cake. I need help! Any clue? Any help is appreciated, I know it is alot of questions....Brandy
