Working on my next wedding cake with lots of new skills to try. Wondering if a molded pearl border can be made in advance and kept to apply later?

This will be 5 tier cake and I'm actually wondering if the border needs to be applied at home or after stacking on site.

OH! And a favorite size for the silicone molds? (Wishing I could see the molds in person to get an idea of size before hand and can not for the life of me mentally picture mm sizes! lol )

TIA!!

Hi! I like the # 8 pearl mold personally. I just like that size. I use it for 18" down to 6" cakes.

If the cake is round, you really want to be careful not to make them up to far in advance. I can vouch for my pearl clay, they can be made a few days in advance and stored in a container.

The best thing you can do is an experiment to see how many days ahead you can make them. Make a strand and test it every day.....

If you need more help, I'm happy to help.

Yes, experimenting with what you will put in the molds, really is the best thing to do. No surprises the week of the wedding icon_smile.gif
