I have only had one answer about those brooches that are the new fad on cakes lately, can anyone please tell where they purchase them?. Are they expensive they come in rounds, squares looking like diamond belt buckles, ovals and diamond shaped.

The best way to find them is to do a google search for cake jewelry. The ones I've seen are like the big old rhinestone buttons they used to make and I've seen several shapes. They are pretty expensive though. I was looking at the fountain type displays with the dangling crystals and they run about $80 a set on some of the sites...

This site seems to say people are using non-edible ones. Of course they are trying to sell the brooches so it would make sense...

But they don't look like more than a regular brooch. I read an article that says they are used for cakes, sashes or traditional brooches so I don't think they are more than a normal brooch. (let me know if I am wrong). I know a site you can buy brooches wholesale so they are much cheaper. MUCH CHEAPER.

Has anyone bought any of these that they could tell us how they're attached? If they don't have a special attachment for cake, I would think you could use just about anything for one, couldn't you?

I am going to least this is how I would attach it.

I would put a coffee straw over the pin part and attach it probably with RI (the straw that is) and stick it in the cake. Then attach more with RI on the back of the brooch.

These places sell brooches very cheap.

I have a wedding cake for NEXT May (2010) - the bride is wanting to use her Grandmothers brooches on the cake.....thanks for the ideas on how to set them! I am a tad nervous about that cake, the wedding is one that will be featured in The Knot!

Ive purchased some from Jen Dontz. She has some really nice molds that you can use gumpaste or chocolate in. She uses them on her cakes and if you look at her cakes, their AMAZING! Not to mention, she is the nicest person in the world and our family adopted her last November when she came out to do a class. So now my kids know her as Aunt Jenny!!! lol

Usually brides can be very specific on what they want for a brooche in a cake. I tell them to go and buy whatever they prefer to use. It never fails and they are always happy with how the cake looks. Is some input they have put on their own cake, and they feel their own style comes across on it.

I used the kind that are like a belt buckle - the ribbon just goes through the buckle and then I attached the ribbon in the back of the cake.

I got mine at Michael's in the wedding section - I believe they had oval and square at my store. They weren't that expenseive $8 - somewhere around there - and of course I used a coupon!!
