I've seen one here on cc but I can't remember who made the cake. I looked to me like they rolled out and cut long strips of fondant and cut them into tiny little squares. Maybe whoever made the cake will see your post. If you try this I'd suggest letting the fondant strips dry a bit so they won't stick together.

You could make irregular shaped confetti by piping a line of RI on wax paper with a fairly flat tip (rose or basketweave), then just lightly chop it with your cake spatula.

I did confetti for a graduation cake. I rolled out my fondant very thin, then I took my pizza cutter and went east/west - north/south to make small squares. Let them dry a little so they are easier to handle.

That's what it looked like to me on the cake that I'm speaking of. Glad to know because I'm wanting to make some for a graduation cake. Thanks. thumbs_up.gif
