Hi all! I was wondering if anyone knew how to achieve this sequined look ( attached) on BC. I can't really tell if there is a piece attached to the base of the cake. Any help would be amazing! Thank you!

Funny, I was just thinking about designing some kind of figure to do a cake like this...I'd make the larger "sequins" out of gumpaste or fondant it he same color as the smaller ones, which you can use regular sprinkles for. You should be able to spread some buttercream on the cake where they're going and press them on there while the icing is still wet. If you ice the cake first, then refrigerate it, you can wait until the main part of the cake is hard, then apply the sprinkles. That way they'll only stick to the part where you put the fresh icing on and you'll be able to control the design.

Thanks for the great advice! I ended up masking the part I wnated sequins on with wax paper. This is how it turned out! The silhouette is actually of their daughter which I thought was crazy sweet.
