Does anyone know how to get the look of sequins? I just need to do an edge in them.
Any ideas would be great!

Someone on here not too long ago had the same question. The best answer she got was to follow the geletan instructions in the geletan bow tutorial that's kept a sticky at the top of this forum. Once the sheets of geletan are cooled, then take a hole punch and puch out your sequins! Not sure if the person ended up taking pictures of the finished product, but perhaps they'll post it here....

Yes! You need to read the how to make gelatin bows and flowers thread. Add disco or luster dust into the gelatin and brush it on a flat mat, let it dry and hole punch! Try differnt shaped punches too!

Perhaps you can cut out little pieces of fondant with a really small cookie cutter/fondant cutter or a hole punch? Then you can brush them with luster dusts/diamond dusts. Pinkcakebox has a picture of a cake with sequins they recently did- looks like fondant.

Here's a link. <a href='http://blog.pinkcakebox.com/'><img src='http://www.pinkcakebox.com/images/cake1173b.jpg' alt='Sequins on Dress waistband'></a>

Sorry, that link is working and I can't get the picture attached. If you go to
http://blog.pinkcakebox.com/ it's the Bar Mitzvah Dress Form Cake on the first page.

Thanks so much for the ideas. I have worked with the gelatin and didn't even think to use that. I guess I have my work "cut" out for me.....so many tiny circles to attach! But great idea. I will have a look at the link....thanks.

Just had a thought- you could maybe use a round piping tip to cut circles out from either gelatin or fondant if the hole punch doesn't work.

tguegirl, thanks for the link.....that's exactly what I wanted. I'll try the hole punch first and hope it works. Again, thanks for the ideas!! icon_smile.gif
