I love the look of these sequins.  They look almost tranluscent.  Does anyone know how this was done.  Is it gelatin? If it is, can you share the technique or point me to a tutorial.

 

 It doesn't look like fondant or gumpaste but maybe.....I'd really like to us it on a wedding cake in a few weeks.  Any help is appreciated.

I remember that cake from bridal snob, so pretty.  There is a tutorial for similarish flowers about half way down on this page, video.  Might help with ideas for the sequins.

Thanks for the help.  I have never worked with gelatin before.  Will the "finished" sequins by flexible so that they will conform to the curve of the cake?  I'm excited to try a new technique!
