I did a search for "rhinestone banding" and found some. Here's one, there were others: http://www.rhinestonesu.com/banding.htm

Looks like it could be a really expensive project!

you can get them at craft stores like Micheals and Hobby Lobby. I have also seen them in some Walmarts in larger cities. HTH

Joanns has them too, if I remember right. (I have seen them in an actual store, and the only ones I go into are Michaels and Joanns!) They were not cheap - but blingy!!

I find them at Hobby Lobby in the fabric dept...they are not exactly like those...but still 12.99 a yard....so use a coupon. There are quite a few cakes with them in my pics.
I have the bride purchase and bring them to me.

The ones at Joanne's and other craft stores simply don't have the quality and bling that you need for a wedding cake.

I have found the best pricing and quality at:
http://www.diamondpartyconfetti.com/

They sell it wholesale and also by the yard.

They also carry the edible cake diamonds too.

If you want rhinestone banding, go to www.rhinestonesunlimited.com
They have single row all the way to 4 or 5 row. The more rows, the more expensive they are. I use the 4 row quite often. For 12 yards, it runs around $200.00 wholesale. You can get them in gold or silver mountings.

The rhinestones at JoAnns and Hobbly Lobby are only single row, and they are nowhere near the same quality as the banding.

There are plenty on ebay. Try using "rhinestone banding". I'm on a diffrent computer, but I can post the contact person on ebay that I spoke with. I've used the ones at JoAnn's last year at a bridal show which kind of started the bling trend for several of my brides. I give them how many yards and they purchase the bling. I agree the ones I saw a JoAnn's is a single row, it's ok, but not as dramatic as a 3, 4, or 5 row.

This is so pretty on a cake, and i just love yours Ramacake. When this type of banding, single or multibands are used on a cake, do you charge the bride for the banding and let them keep it, or expect to get it back? Lets say you can buy it for $15 a yard, how much would you then charge to use a yard on a cake?

Here's the chart from Diamond Party Confetti. HTH icon_smile.gif


ROUND CAKES
Formula: Circumference = 3.14 x Diameter
EXAMPLE:
TIER DIAMETER MULTIPLY BY AMOUNT OF RIBBON NEEDED (INCHES)
TIER 1 6 INCH TIER X 3.14 = 18.84 - ROUND UP TO 19 INCHES
TIER 2 10 INCH TIER X 3.14 = 31.40 - ROUND UP TO 32 INCHES
TIER 3 14 INCH TIER X 3.14 = 43.96 - ROUND UP TO 44 INCHES
Now add the amount of ribbon needed for all tiers together
19 + 32 + 44 = 95 INCHES
To determine the number of yards needed for the cake in the above example, we now divide the number of inches by 36 and round up:
95 divided by 36 = 2.64 yards of ribbon - Round up to 3 yards

SQUARE CAKES
Formula: Perimeter = 2 x Length + 2 x Width
EXAMPLE:
TIER LENGTH X 2 PLUS WIDTH X 2 = AMOUNT OF RIBBON NEEDED (INCHES)
TIER 1 6 IN X 2 = 12 + 6 IN X 2 = 12 = 24 INCHES
TIER 2 10 IN X 2 = 20 + 10 IN X 2 = 20 = 40 INCHES
TIER 3 14 IN X 2 = 28 + 14 IN X 2 = 28 = 56 INCHES
Now add the amount of ribbon needed for all tiers together
24 + 40 + 56 = 120 INCHES
To determine the number of yards needed for the cake in the above example, we now divide the number of inches by 36 and round up:
120 divided by 36 = 3.33 yards of ribbon - Round up to 4 yards
