Hi Ballymena ,

One of my customers showed me this trick. Take a petal/leaf former and fill it with Silicone Plastique making the top surface nice and level. Then press a string of pearls into the Silicone Plastique about two thirds of the way in. The pearls should be touching each other with no gaps in between them. Allow the Silicone Plastique to cure and remove the string of pearls. Presto - your own pearl mold. Why stop at pearls - you can use this method with any type of bead of which many are very detailed and would look great on a cake.

Hope This Helps,

Oh WOW!~ Thank you for that great idea. I've been wanting to make pearls for a while, since I can't seem to find them in my local cake decorating store. I will definitely do it~ Gosh, I love CC icon_biggrin.gif
