A potential bride sent me the attached photo.  I'm wondering... what are the little bead-like things on the "bride" cake pop?  They look smaller than any type of sprinkle or pearl that I have seen.  Just wondering what they are so I know what I'm looking for :-)  Thanks in advance!

Hi, i do think they are the smallest of the little pearls that you can buy. You can also use tapioca (smallest beads of this too.Then drop them in a bag of pearl dust and you have tiny ones. But , again , i think they are the smallest of the pearls.They are beutiful , aren,t they?

I just saved to my pictures. Then clicked on that and then zoomed in on the pic and they still look like tiny pearls or dragees, etc. hth

The look like regular white sprinkles to me.

They are most likely white nonperials (not sure about the spelling lol)!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Wilton makes them. They are like $4.00 A bottle. Micahels walmart has them. They are little ball mini sprinkles they come in multi colors also.

I think Cait is right.  I would go with Nonpareils.

Good luck!

Thy are the very smallest round sprinkles for cookies.  They come in a variety of colors.  I used the red ones to decorate the ruffles on this princess cake's skirt.



As a size comparison the flower centers are the regular size red sugar pearls.
