Hi...I'm working on a last minute "jewel" cake and I saw these jumbo pearls at my local cake shop (they were about 3/4" - 1" in diameter). Frankly, I don't want to purchase them at the cake shop b/c they just have a bad attitude in general and I really don't want to give them the business if I don't have to.

That being said, does anyone know where I can possibly purchase pearls this size online?

TIA

icon_confused.gif why wouldn't you make your own out of fondant - roll in pearl sheen and allow to dry for 24 hours?

If you put the pearls and pearl sheen in a bowl and keep swirling - they end up perfectly round and ever so smooth. thumbs_up.gif

No, doesn't sound bad - everyone has weeks like that thumbs_up.gif
I am probably no help for ordering them as i am in Australia - hope someone closer to you can help.

They're called Sixlets. I have the white pearl ones--very nice in a pinch.
