Good Afternoon!

I am perplexed to say the least LOL

I was asked to recreate this layer on a cake, after saying yes, I am dumbfounded as to what i can use since i can't find Teal colored edible confetti!

I was going to make make dots out of teal colored chocolate, started that but I think it is going to take me forever to make enough to even partially cover the tier.  I am also thinking of making the dots out of teal colored fondant.  Then i was thinking of trying to find teal colored m&m's since the cake will be chocolate.  I am now grasping and figured would ask the pros!

Can someone recommend something that looks similar to what is on that tier?

I agree, it looks like the confetti.  I'm sure someone knows where you might find teal, but I'm sorry--I don't.  Have you considered using another color and airbrushing it teal?

I was thinking about it, but i can only find them in bright primary colors so not sure if the airbrush would take....

I am going nuts LOL, but then again nothing new.

Looks to me like a whole heap of fondant punched out with a hole punch after it has dried a bit. It looks to thick to me to be confetti. If you want to make your own gelatin confetti that might be an option and it is really easy to colour, I just coloured the water before adding the gelatin each time I have done it.

Thanks everyone! Sorry for the late response, but they day i had to deliver this cake was also the day my daughter graduated from high school.  She is my youngest of three and it was a bittersweet moment for me.  I also had a few orders to get out in the weeks that followed.  But i posted a picture of the finished product. :-) I think it looks pretty good :-)
