I'm usually not so last minute but long story short...wedding is on Saturday and I'm only now experimenting with my new bead maker. I have the CK 6mm mold and somehow the beads look smaller than I had imagined.
Anyone ever use 6mm beads for bottom borders? Cake is 4 tier 6-8-10-12. I'm worrying that it will look disproportionately small. The alternative is hand rolling beads.......
Any input would be appreciated.
Of course, smaller looks more delicate, yet too big can be gaudy. If you don't need larger than 6mm to hide any gaps for lower borders, I think 6mm would look great.
Turns out I had gap issues and ended up rolling those suckers by hand....
I don't know what happened but I ended up with the most God awful gaps on this cake. Ended up having to put on a fondant ribbon which was not part of the original design to hide flaws. Composing an email to the bride as I type. I feel so horrible.
I just hope nothing goes wrong with the delivery. I think I would burst into tears if it did.
