Hi Leah,
What brand of sugar crytals do you use? Any tips as to where to purchase them? I have a white chocolate buttercream frosting that I use, but recently I have had two brides ask if I can make them cakes with sugar crystals on top of the icing. I have never worked with sugar crystals before. Any and all tips would be helpful.

I would suggest laying a clean dish towel under the bowl to catch any that miss the bowl and they will stay on the towek rather than bouncing all over the counter and floor....this is adding to Leahs directions

Hi Madge,
Do you have any suggestions as to where to purchase the crystals, and what type would you recommend that will work with a white chocolate bc frosting?

I don't buy many Wilton products but I do like their sugar crystals. Nice and chunky, like sea salt.

Minicuppie, agreed. the sugar crystals are 1 of 2 Wilton products I think are good! Most of their stuff is such total junk. I have actually tried other brands of the Sparkling Sugar (definitely NOT sanding sugar) and the W is better.

The dividing mat. The mat that shows you where to place things on the cake in equal parts. I may not know the proper name . . .

Like this? I pour it all around the bottom of each tier. Then slowly drag a pallette knife up the sides, pulling sugar up, but not smooshing into the icing. Works really well. Brush the excess off the bottom ridge with a dry paintbrush .

i looked it up -- cake dividing wheel. it says it comes in a set with the garland marker. i only have the marker, but the mat seems like it would do more of what i wanted. i'll be buying one of these.

thanks for the tip!
