Does anyone have any idea on how this cake was done? I sent a message to the member but no response yet (probably super busy). I'd like to know how the texture was possibly created. How do you attach sugar, non-pereils, and dragees to the fondant? Thanks for any advice icon_smile.gif

My guess would be that she painted the surface of the fondant with piping gel and then mixed the sugar crystals, non-parells, and dragees together and either sprinkled all around the cake or gently patted them on with her hand. That's probably how I would go about it.

I just did a cake with multi size pearls on it last week, and I used piping gel. It worked very well.

Wow, that's quite a cake. Glad you asked that question and hope you'll post your results.

A member of the Wilton forum does absolutely mind-blowing cakes and quite often does some with sugar like the one above. He said that he places the cake in a large tub, suspends a bag with sugar (like the bags with the popcorn styrofoam in shipping places) and attaches a tube. He paints the cake with piping gel, then lets the sugar coat the cake. He can re-use the excess in the bucket.
