HEY ALL! Ok, soooo, I want to do this cake for a HUGE event and I think this would be perfect but Im not quite sure if this is hand rolled fondant beads of different sizes or The pearls you buy and attach. What do you think it is and how do I attach it without whatever I use showing on the cake? Any suggestions on how to do this cake would be awesome! I almost think it would be easier to buy the little pearls and attach it rather than roll them. Any help on how to do this cake would be appreciated! Thank you!

I always buy my pearls.  I don't have the patience to make them myself.  If the cake is covered in fondant, a little edible glue or piping gel I would think would get them to stick.  It's worked for me, but I haven't had the amount as this cake has.  Maybe someone else will have a better idea, though!

I've always purchased premade pearls and attached to fondant with a tiny bit of piping gel.

Thank you so MUCH! I don't even know why I didn't think of the piping gel!!! LOL! I definitely think I will find some pearls of different sizes and purchase them. If anyone has ideas on where to purchase different sizes It would be appreciated! Thanks again Annie8! It makes it seem so much easier to me now! lol

Just a warning, I've seen this cake on the threads before and the experienced decorators say it literally take HOURS to attach all those pearls. Since you said a HUGE event, I have a feeling this will take awhile in case you were trying to schedule to time to make the cake.

AI think there's a thread to where people suspected it may have been royal icing piped.

Sweetwise has 3 different sizes, Global Sugar Art has a few sizes, I've found them on Amazon, too, but I usually try to stick with a place I'm familiar with for cake supplies.
