Fondant Pearls?? - Page 2

Thanks, ntertayneme for what sounds like a great way to get uniform pearls and other balls. I never would have thought of that!

Okay, kind of a strange question/idea.  Has anyone tried "stringing" their hand rolled fondant pearls?  I was thinking if I string them, then they will be easier to place and remove.  Thoughts?

I did a cake with a bunch of strung gumpaste and fondant pearl and jewels, and it can be done. use a quilting needle or a beading needle because they're thinner than a regular sewing needle, and let the pearls set up a little but so that they don't get distorted. If you use a really soft material to make them they'll end up getting squished if you press on them while you're stringing them, so you have to be careful.

Here's a link to a photo of  the cake...This was done on buttercream and it was a %&^$ to set up. If you string beads do it for a fondant cake unless you're just going to put them around the base of the tiers. The strung beads get heavy and will dig into the edges of the tier when you put the string on it if the cake is covered in buttercream. https://www.facebook.com/acaketoremember/photos/pb.92855088670.-2207520000.1416608269./10152144756253671/?type=3&theater

I once made a rosary for a baptism cake for my niece and I used a 50/50 gumpaste and fondant mixture. I rolled it out and used the circle cut out so they would all be uniform size then I rilled them into little balls. I left them to harden for a few minutes on a foam pad and then went back and poked a hole through with a brand new needle. Once they were fully dried I rolled them in a container with some luster dust and strung them together using fishing line. It worked perfectly.
