I don't think the cake jewelry is edible so is it OK to just buy the regular stuff from the craft store and use my 40% coupon in the process (LOL...save a few $$).
Please let me know. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!
under the heading of 'any advice being appreciated' i would kindly say it's not the best idea to use on a cake
but at least taking that extra care like you said to remove it is the best way to do that
perhaps an idea for this cake or another cake might be make & use pearl strands out of fondant and you can get cameo molds--for pouring chocolate into for just a couple bucks and you could use fondant or chocolate in there to make jewelry
you can make chains out of fondant by rolling a skinny snake, cutting the pieces off and putting it together like a paper chain & coloring it
rings would be pretty easy to make--same method
just some jewelry thought for you
