I am not sure about M&M, but sixlets makes white pearl sized candy coated chocolates. In my area I can purchase them in a 1lb bag at Hobby Lobby for $6.99. I think you can also order them from the company.

Dunno about M&Ms, but how about these:

Sixlets are sort of like M&MS. icon_smile.gif

Or these look pretty good, but they're hard candy rather than chocolates:

Here is the one I did recently with the sixlets. If you catch them with the 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby, I would buy a bunch. I got several different colors,

Thanks your cake looks great, do they make them smaller? She is wanting them on her cakes not as a border, she wants ribbon as her border

the hard candy ones from the previous response say they are 1/4"diameter, which if I remember correctly is smaller than the sixlets.

I recently bought Wilton sugar pearls at Michaels - they have the pearlized finish and are tiny.

those sixlets look awesome and are a nice size for cakes. So much better than rolling out fondant balls!

I wouldn't go with the M & M's. Just my opinion, but I don't think they would look elegant enough for a wedding cake. You can always cut them out using round tip & roll. I've did that before and then dust with pearl dust.
