Has anyone seen molds for them or is that a DIY with two part silicone sorta thing? I'm not talking about the monster molds that look like fake gems - I mean a mold that's a quarter inch at the most. I've spent way too much time online this weekend searching icon_lol.gif

Thanks guys; Anna, that was one of the first sites I went to, but the mold they were talking about from Global is still much larger than the 'diamonds' from the UK. I was just thinking about the Miley Cyrus cake challenge where Marina Sousa did poured sugar chandelier beads on a string...when she pulled them out of the mold I wondered then and I still wonder if she made that mold or bought it?

I'm pretty sure she said she made the mold for that.

Found some premade on the Fancy Flours website...not bad pricing either! They had kits there as well to make your own.

Phllbbbttt!!!! icon_lol.gif I sorta had a feeling she made it! The Fancy Flours site does have some relatively smaller molds; must've missed it the first time I was there (too many websites in one day I guess), so thanks!

Okay, so I found a thread here, talking about that specific cake where Marina Sousa explains how they did it...I e-mailed Culinart about which product to buy (either the one you knead or the one you pour) and it took them a while to answer, so I e-mailed Marina this morn and she e-mailed back in like, a couple of hours icon_eek.gif that they used the one you knead. I actually bought Plastique a while ago and it was inadvertently packed away and the stuff only keeps for a year...gonna use it right away this time icon_lol.gif

I was at the Ok sugar show last year when Marina and dawn made their beads they were made by pouring melted isomalt into the mold
