I did a search on CC, but the links weren't working, so I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how to make edible rhinestones? Are they really difficult to make? I'm making a dog collar (thanks Cheatize for the idea!) for my dog cake and would like to put rhinestones on it.

Any guidance would be most welcome! icon_smile.gif

hi there, you can make your own using isomalt.
this link shows you the product and how it is used. it is a sugar substitute and if you buy a jewel mould (you can get ones of all different shapes and sizes) you make up the isomalt and pour it into the mould. once it is set you pop it out and there you have your edible jewels! be very careful with isomalt as it gets very hot and can burn badly so wear protective gloves when pouring or using.


this link shows you the mould you can buy to put the isomalt in

this link may help. you can buy isomalt in the US and Canada as far as i know quite easily and any good cake craft supplies will sell the jewel moulds. you can also buy the edible diamonds already made too on line

hope this helps

Cool! They are only shipping to the US as of now, but a girl can dream (I'm in Canada).

I've seen some on the Global Sugar Art website - literally just looking them up myself icon_wink.gif

"Cake Mischief" are really good! They are in Edmonton, they ship very quickly, have reasonable prices and I've been very pleased with them. I just ordered a jewel mold tonight actually. What about hard candy mix?
I ordered some from there too and I'm going to try it in the mold!
