hi guys, a friend of mine wants a princess cake for her daughter, and she wants it covered in tiny beads, i have never attempted anything like beading bead effect or fancy bead topper sprays on my cakes before, and i have no idea where to start, please help,
Hi there, are you going to make a round or square cake? And she wants it to be covered in beads/pearls?
There are few ways to make pearls. You can use a mold to make a string of pearls or make by hand. Here is a great step by step on making them,
Here is the link to the pearl maker I have,
There are few sizes on them.
hi its a round stacked 2tier 10" bottom tier, 8" top, covered in beads and pears with a feather and bead spray on top, thanks for your links i will definatly be checking them out.
If you have lots of time you can roll your fondant out to a consistent thickness (I use dowel rods on each side to make sure it it all evenly rolled) then cut rounds with your tips - using a large (2D) for large balls and a 12 (big end) for smaller ones. That way they are all consistent.
I love the pearl maker too for a "strand" of pearls.
You can see I use the balls a lot in my pics.
If you need a million, I would buy premade ones...
One other thing I know someone has done - if you need bigger ones, use the white chocolate malted milk balls and paint them.
BTW - I got my pearl mold from JenniferMI - and am making a new list of goodies I want from her site!
