I have had a request for the use of swarvoski crystals to be used on the plaque of a cake, my 1st question is where do I get them from (I am in Australia) and my 2nd question is how would I secure them onto the plaque.

I know someone here will be able to help me

With thanks Lucia

I don't use swarvoski crystals, but I attach the ones I use with a bit of royal icing or tylose disolved in water.

Try Fire Mountain. They have a great web site and ship all over the world. I order from them A LOT as I also make jewelry.

I used to make jewelry and liked to order my crystals & beads from Brightlings Beads. Their prices are great, there's no minimum order, and you get free shipping if the order is over $25. Most sites have a much higher free shipping $ amount.

Try - I've ordered from them a few times and always been impressed, postage not too high and very quick to dispatch. They stock all kinds but the ones I've used on cake before are the non-hot fix flat backed crystals.

You can stick them on with sugar glue - I wouldn't use royal icing as it would ooze out around the crystals.

If you are careful and make just the smallest dot of royal there is no oozing.
