This is the cake I was asked to make for a wedding in June. Except their colors are gold with champagne and brown. So, instead of the crystal brooches and monogram, I need to make something gold out of gumpaste. I don't want to use dragees because the bottom border is going to be a pearl bead border. They are having pink gerberas on the table but don't want that on the cake. I thought about adding a pink jewel(s) on each gold ring, but I'm just not sure. They are looking for elegant and formal. I am also doing a fondant ribbon so that the whole cake will be edible.

Thanks for any and all help!

so id be thionking champagne cake, brown ribbon, with the gold accent?
if you want to keep it looking similar, id think piped beads of royal done with gold lustre dust. maybe alternating pink and gold?

What will the pink jewels be made of to keep it edible? I wonder if you could crush pink lollipops or hand candy and use some good chunks out of that. Your idea sounds perfect. The original cake is beautiful.
