I'd read on here some recommendations to use Sixlets instead of pearls. Having just ordered 3 pounds I can say that they are very pretty but WAY TOO BIG. I normally use an 8 mm pearl, sometimes clusters of 5 mm, The Sixlets are 3/8 inch.

I had to look up what they were, but when I saw them I recognized them...Yeah, too big. They'd be good for a brithday cake, depending on what you were doing, but they're too big for wedding cakes.

yeah, Hobby Lobby sells them to in the bridal section, too big for regular cakes but would be ok for a topsy turvey, how do they taste??

They taste really good though icon_biggrin.gif

Hobby Lobby sells them in all the different colors, in their wedding favor aisle.

Hang onto them, LeahS.

Push them in far enough, and you have some nice flower centers.
