I live in CA and the little silver dragees are illegal, but I wanted to do a wedding cake with something similar as a silver accent since the wedding colors include silver (shiny silver). The bride did not want the silver to be too large, but thought that the small balls would add a great sparkle (I agree!). Any suggestions for alternatives?

You can use small tapioco balls, drop them in silver dust and that is great also, Plus they are not so hard . If you have the time, you can cut them from fondant, using a icing tip, to get them the same size, roll the, let them dry on peice of soft foam, then drop them in the silver dust(in a bag with a little vodka added. shake bag really good . pour out on smooth paper towel. The same directions with the tapioca. using the vodka with the dust in a plastic bag. Have used this before with Nick Lodges instructions. hth
