I have this wedding cake to do in June and I am having difficulty trying to figure out what size the silver dragees are. Could someone tell me what size I need to order and where the best place to order from would be.
Hopefully I can link to the photo.

Those look to be about 4mm dragees...not sure where the best place to order from but lots of online decorating stores sell them.

Thanks Kiddiekakes. I'm not good with the whole metric measurement thing. I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question.

As Kiddiekakes said they are 4mm dragees
You can find them all over the net I bought mine from Cake Stuff.com (UK) its the only place I found dragees without gelatine. If that is not a problem to you Im sure you can find them locally heres a link for the 4mm ones

I just ordered a bunch for a cake that will have a tier covered in them from the baker's kitchen(US).
