so I have seen this cake with edible sequins on the bottom tier. I know how to do the technique (well guessing) I assume the tier is painted with gold, so rose water mixed with gold dust. And then the sequins are applied, however that's where I'm stuck, how do you apply the glue without smudgin the gold? [postimage id="3935" thumb="900"]
Thank you for your suggestions
Apply sequins first, then paint gold.
I would have thought the sequins would lose there shine?
I just did this sequin cake last weekend. The cake is buttercream iced, then covered in sequins sprinkles (multicolored). Then I make "paint" from luster dust and vodka and brush the whole thing. There is a spot on top where I brushed too much "paint" on and it looks like a puddle, but otherwise the method worked quite well.
Alternately you can airbrush or use the PME silver spray (The WIlton silver spray is crap and I don't recommend it). [postimage id="3937" thumb="900"]
Thank you for the picture and reply. I have actually done this method too, however the other method I'm looking to find out it done with sequins. Like the picture I've attached.
I don't know, maybe it's just edible glue applied and the sequins stuck on??

Any other suggestions lovely people :) :)
I zoomed in on your initial cake picture to 300% and it does not look like sequins. It looks like shards or something. Maybe WIlton cake sparkles?
