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.

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! icon_biggrin.gif
