Fondant Pearls?? - Page 2
Cake Central Top Picks
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
