AThank you very much for the link. The pieces looks bigger than the sequin candy on the blog. Any suggestion if what candy should I use???

I'm wondering why the decorator didn't use several light applications of airbrush gold?  Maybe the pressure of the air would blow off the sequins.  Wouldn't it be cool if you could get all yellow sequins or all white - for this procedure.  I'll Google it.  And the part about the sequins looking larger than in the photo, maybe it's just the way they were applied - a lot -vs- lightly?  Just thinking out loud.

AThanks for your input. I think pure yellow or white is a great idea. I really don't know what to do till now :-(

To get the squarer shapes, I think you would have to roll out gumpaste really thin - use a pasta roller - and cut into strips then squarish shapes with a pizza cutter. They don't have to be exactly square, as you can see in the photo you provided, and they look better if they are not all flat, to get more texture. Wait for them to dry - couple of days or so on large baking sheets (or make them way ahead and store them in a cardboard box once dry), then apply like that confetti cake on the Cake Blog link. Then paint. You will need a lot of squares, and a lot of paint, and a lot of patience! I would also try airbrushing it. If the squares are stuck on well with the piping gel, not many of them will blow off, and you can always re-apply any that do. I love the look of it!
