Edible gold sequins - Page 4

post #46 of 55

I'm sure the OP would want those tiers to have the appearance of being edible

I guess, but the gelatin sequins don't look edible - they look like the real deal.

I know I'm coming in late here, but here is a cake I made with a similar look.


I used a PME circle plunger cutter (smallest one) and the tier that's sequinned is a 6inch oval. It took 2000 sequins (yes, sadly I counted!) which took 3 hrs to cut out, 6 hrs to apply and 2hrs to paint with gold edible lustre dust mixed with alcohol. This was for a competition and I had to be extra careful and painted the tier whilst attached to the lower and upper tier, but I'm sure you could do it much quicker if you worked on this tier separately. I used sugar paste treated with tylo powder. And I won a gold! :0)

Hi!

Is it possible this is the technique used?

I don't think so, those don't have the same look. It's probably done like Claracluckcakes said, individually cut out discs. Doing individual ones with thin gumpaste look the most realistic.

Serious attitude problem, don't bother replying if it's just to be nasty


I agree. There was no need to be so rude. Some people are just naturally grumpy!
