Does anyone know where to get the "bling banding" that I see on a lot of cakes? Um...reasonable that is?

Hi lissacarol, I'm in the UK and I've just bought some from ebay to go around the ankle strap of a gumpaste shoe I am making, we can get it in the haberdashery dept of department stores and various other small outlets, where do you live?

I've used Diamond Party Confetti...didn't have a problem with them and the customer service was good.

I will check out diamond party confetti. I live in KY and in the town I live in all we have is hobby lobby and michaels. Our hobby lobby does have some bling but it is single strands and starts at around $10/yd which might sound cheap but if you are wanting them to show up you would need multiple rows so that is my dilema. Thanks!!

Try this website http://weddedglitz.com/index.php They have 2, 5 and 10 rows of crystal banding for wedding cakes. I am using this for my daughter's wedding cake. Good luck and let me know how it goes for you!

Hobby Lobby puts out a 40% off one item every other week right now, and you can print it off of their website and maybe use that for it. I'm not sure, but I think it would be off a single cut of ribbon/fabric. So once you know how much you need, just get one long cut and use the 40% off. HTH!

I found some in walmart in the fabric department where all of the ribbons are. They are cheap, not as pretty as the expensive ones, but would work for a more economical option.
