I know what most are gonna say and that is make Blown sugar ones.However I don't have the time nor the skill to make blown sugar bubbles so I am wondering what else I can use to make that look.
Probly just hand rolled fondant or GP balls with lots of shimmer dust. OR pearl glaze for a wet shiny look.
Thanks Lurvely...I thought the same thing.I will have to tell the mother though to take them off before she cuts the cake as it is for a 1yr old.
Are you not wanting to use buttercream is that it??
Have you tried melting down the white lifesavers? I melted them before to use on a cupcake and all you do is crush them and put them on a sheet of foil (spray it with non stick cooking spray first) and put it in the oven at 350 degrees with the door slightly ajar so you can watch it, it only takes a couple minutes to melt into a puddle, once it's melted take it out of the oven and let it sit a couple minutes and touch it lightly after a few minutes and see if it's still warm but not TOO HOT to handle (be careful), once you can handle it cut off a piece and roll it into a ball. I used a cookie cutter on mine, once it cools off all the way it hardens back into candy again.
I wonder if they make mini lollipop molds OR what if you rip the sticks off of some white (cream soda ones) dum dum lollipops?? would they be too big? Other than that all I can think of would be buttercream or white gumballs?
edited to add photos
the star on this cupcake tower at the top was done using blue jolly ranchers (same technique with melting though) but I used a cookie cutter to cut it out while it was still warm and workable. HTH
I used white gumballs on my Blue's Clues cake...
Couldn't you just use white chocolate rolled in a ball brushed with some pearl dust.
I just saw a pic where they used small white (mini) marshmellows and it looked cute. You can roll them and make them round
You could pipe bubbles-thats what I would do!(I don't know how that would work!)
