I have to do some ballerina slippers, and I want to put a pretty broach on both slippers!

I don't want to put a store brought broach! So I have silver dust and dragees, what else would you recommend?

Thank you in advance

Pictures are much welcome!!!!!!!

Well, there's lots and lots of silicone molds in the shape of just about every broach ever made, you can go that route. OR you can make your own mold out of a broach you like. OR you can put together some dragees in a little design to simulate a broach... That should give you a starting point anyway. icon_biggrin.gif

I made some for a cake - used gumpaste, isomalt for the jewel, and dragees. Here is a pic of the cake:

You can also buy some pretty cool ones from JenniferMI on here - sugardelites.com - she didn't have them when I made mine or I would have bought them! icon_wink.gif

I bought the modern flower molds from my local cake supply shop. I used chocolate fondant and then painted them silver to give them an aged look. My cake isn't due until this coming Saturday, but I will post pics soon after. Good luck and please post pics when your slippers are complete. I can't wait to see them.

Hey Lou, your cake is gorgeous!! I have a couple of cameo molds that would look great in that same setting! Beautiful job! icon_biggrin.gif
