I ordered rhinestone banding from Diamond Party confetti. What is the best way to secure it to itself on the back of the cake? Thanks!

AThat's my favorite place to get it! It is very heavy. If you are putting it on the bottom of the tier, you can secure it with a bit of buttercream or royal.

The one in my gallery has a pink fondant band behind it but I used buttercream to hold.

AThat looks like it may even be from diamond party originally. It's a bit less but not much. Including shipping, I paid $148.70 for 4 row

Thanks for the input Deliciousdesserts! I am planning on a 2-tier (6 and 8"), with a 1 1/2" tiffany blue satin ribbon and the 4 row crystal banding on top of that. I live in Burlington, NC and visited Charleston last April. Loved it!

 

I paid $50 for a 2 yards, 4 row band from Diamond party..

don't hate me--just looks like another potentially good source

AK8 I'm all for finding other sources! Not only don't hate ya really appreciate it. This one also looks like the good stuff.

My only concerns are: is it the good stuff (lots of knock offs that look awful), & is it also treated like the stuff from diamond party confetti.

I like & trust that DPC is crystals with a food safe backing, high quality, & handled safely. If I can find that less expensive, I'm in!
