How should I go about attaching pearls around the bottoms of the tiers on a cake on the outside of a ribbon??? Like this:
....now I'm assuming here that these are a string of pearls and not individual ones.....any ideas?
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.
any suggestions on how to fasten the two ends?
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?
Are you telling me you like my eyes??? Batting lashes furiously, shrugs shoulders and tilting head to the side-my good side.
Oh crap now you're gonna want some bacon-I'm outa here!
