Hi everyone..

I have to make a gown dress cake for a 21st birthday. The dress is suppose to look like the dress that she will be wearing that night.

Her dress has jade coloured sequences for the top section.. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions of how I can do that??

Any comments are welcome please.. =)

Thanks in advance.

Is this a doll pan cake or a 2-D cake??

If it's a doll pan, I'd suggest applying the fondant to the doll's body in the cut of the dress. Then, while the fondant is still soft enough, take the tip of a frosting tip (maybe a #0 or #1) - whatever size circle looks appropriate and push it into the fondant just enough to get a small impression. Do that over the area you wish to be "sequined" and wait for it to dry a little while.

Then get your pearl dust and vodka and paint it the appropriate color(s).

Maybe practice on a swatch of fondant first.

If it's a 2-D cake, and much larger scale, cut out circles, let them dry, paint and then attach to the cake.

I think disco dust would give you a close enough look for sequins.

Maybe you could use crushed green hard candy or green sugar for the sequins....

Is it a cake like this? 3D? Small top?

I would say CakesbyKarla has the right idea if it is a small section like this. If not, you'll have to cut the circles.
