Edible gold sequins

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone
So I've fallen in love with the look of this technique after I saw the caketress do it! I'm now determined to use this technique on my own wedding cake!
Problem is I really have no idea how it's done
My thinking is to cut out hundreds of small disks of gum paste with a piping tip, stick them all over the tier quite roughly (try dot seem to be arranged neatly which I think adds to the affect) and then airbrush the whole thing with a metallic gold color
I just wanted to know if anyone has done this, how you did it and if my thinking is way off!
Thanks everyone

Thanks for the tip baking sis I had seen another post on this but it was a slightly different look created by using gelatin sheets which isn't the look I'm going for I shall do another search though and see if I missed something

Ps. I know aren't they just gorgeous! The caketress is one freakishly talented lady!

I wasn't trying to be NASTY - I was just like...... you have been sitting there for a week waiting on a reply ...... AND you never thought to Google it for yourself?

 

I am just amazed at THAT!

There is this wealth of information - a fingertap away from people today - BUT they still don't know it ??

ACTUALLY I DID google it and couldn't find what I was looking for hence why I came here, I'm making a huge 7 tier cake from 4" to 16" tiers and 3 of those tiers will be covered in these sequins if I was to just hop on eBay and buy those tiny vials of pre made sequins you linked to I would have to buy hundreds of vials and the cost would be astronomical, so no what you posted didn't help, Google is a great tool but it can't always answer every question
seems to me like you have a very "I am superior than thou" mentality

Glitter, dusts and sequins go pretty far. On a gold painted layer I doubt it would take many vials at all. Even if it did, it is the cost of achieving that look.

Good luck.

Sit there and make those little sequins...... yep - roll out whatever medium you are using to paper thin thickness - cut each one individually - use a pin to poke a hole in EVERY one of those sequins... oh and somehow paint them all GOLD

Unless you are running a 'drone' factory - I am thinking that those little vials of pre-made sequins are a pretty ECONOMICAL choice

Thanks I have searched this exact phrase but most of what I found was tutorials for gelatin sequins which doesn't really give the look I'm after I thought I'd be best to come on here and ask some of the talented members as I know someone on here will have tried this technique icon_smile.gif
