The only time I have ever put small inedible objects on any of my cakes was on my own daughter's (where I cut the cake & removed all of the stones before doing so). I have a real fear of someone choking! Ugh. But my friend is getting married this weekend & now she wants me to add rhinestones to her all butter cream cake! I don't have time to try to make edible jewels & I want to give her what she wants. Help! TIA!
Don't do it! Will you be the one to cut the cake? How would you know that the cake cutter would get every single one off of the cake? What if a kid (or curious adult) tries to sneak one from off the back of the cake and breaks a tooth or chokes? You would be held liable.
What about ordering candy jewels online. Fancy Flours have them, although I've never ordered from them. Just pull up edible candy jewels on Google.
Her wedding is Friday night so I really don't have time to order any or the budget to have them sent overnight. I was trying for think of a way to attach them to a skewer or something. Some way for them to scream - DON'T EAT ME! I won't even be at the wedding, I will be prepping for my daughter's prom.
I think this is one time you are going to have to put your foot down and show the professional you are by telling her it is not possible - explaining why. Does *she* want to be responsible for any possible lawsuits that might develope? If she still insists make her sign a paper explaining what you have outlined in that regard so you will be absolved of any responsibility.
Read this thread. Somewhere in there I put a few links of ways to dress a cake in bling (with wires, like jewelry for cake).
Maybe it will give you ideas.
can you use rock candy as a substitute? maybe paint some silver or sparkle color or disco dust on it to give it a more bling quality?
Just trying to macguyver a way to have bling and edible-ness.
good job! looks great
