How should I go about attaching pearls around the bottoms of the tiers on a cake on the outside of a ribbon??? Like this:

Most likely molded from a CK mold, which makes a continuous strand of whole pearls. Just lay em on there, securing with a dab of GP glue, piping gel, a bit of water, whatever.

would it be possible to use a string of fake pearls?

If you're into fake pearls, sure.

A teeny bit of GP glue, piping gel, corn syrup, whatever is sticky and won't show.

Look closely at the profile of the pearls on the sides of the cake. Those are not whole beads. I think that is a pearl border from a First Impression Mold. The open cavity 1/2 mold.

There is also a CK pearl bead mold that makes perfectly round pearls. perfectly round pearls will stand off the cake a little more then that.

I would not use fake beads as the string shows and the beads are too a apart and it doesn't look as designer as that cake looks. That is a very pretty design!

Mmmmm, looks like it Sad! A PM to the person who made it could confirm it as well, eh?
