The office I work for is hosting a jewelry party, where we get a bunch of girls together and we will buy there gold from them. So I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to possibly get some clients, since I'm just starting out.

My boss wants cupcakes, but I want to do a cake. So I think I will do a lil bit of both. I just have no idea where to begin as far as a design. I tried to find candy molds like rings or some sort of jewelry and they dont make anything like that. I guess I can make jewelry out of fondant but I'm not really sure about the cupcakes.

Anybody have any idea what I can do?? The party is Nov. 4 so at least I have a little bit of time.

It would be neat if you could make a cake like a treasure chest that opens up (like in the gallery) but make it a jewelry box and put a couple of cupcakes with "jewels" inside and put the rest next to it so that it goes together. You might try those edible pearls/beads or use luster dust to give it a shine.
Hope this makes sense... lol... when I read your post that's the first thing that popped into my head and I'm not sure if it came out right! icon_confused.gif

How about a dressmaker's bodice-shaped cake layered with tons of different-length/color pearl strands? I think it would be simpler to excecute but make a much bigger statement. And statement=customers! icon_smile.gif

The clay aisle in your local hobby store has molds that are shaped like faceted jewels... I like the treasure chest idea, instead of standard cupcakes, you could use mini cupcakes with a jewel on each.

There are chocolate molds that are of various shapes of jewels. You could make cupcakes with buttercream icing and then put a colored chocolate jewel on top of each. In various colors, it would look really nice.

If you get the chocolate molds, Michaels sells "Amazing Mold Putty" which you can mold mover the outside of the chocolate and then make poured sugar jewels in ruby, emerald and saphire. I did this on the Pirates cake in my gallery and it worked out great.

I also have a jewelry box photo in there too to look at. This was early in my cake making so I used Ring Pops and candy necklaces for the jewelry (mine was also for a teenager so she like having the candy).

Can't wait to see what you do.

Thank you all for your ideas! JennaB I love your jewelry box you did, its awesome. Does anyone have any instructions or tips on how to go about making a jewelry box? The bottom doesn't look to bad, I worried about doing the top and then getting it to look open.
