I'm making a birthday cake for my friend's daughter and they bought rolls and rolls of this stuff to decorate centerpieces and favors. Image

They have so much of it left over that they asked that I adorn the cake with it. Not the cake board, but the cake itself! (not all 3 tiers, just the middle tier) I'm not used to using many inedible materials on my cakes and I've seen bling ribbons used as borders at the base of each tier but I've never seen it cover an ENTIRE tier. Obviously, they would have to remove it before serving it to their guests.

Do any of you have any experince covering an entire cake with non-edible bling? Can you share some tips for pulling this off? If you have pictures to share that would be awesome too! Do you just paint the back of the bling with piping gel and adhere it to the cake?

I have used non edible bling on a cake though I don't recommend it to anyone ordering a cake. I made sure that they knew what to remove and how to remove it. And I made sure there was a note about it in the contract. The bride wanted sparkle and she didn't like the look of sugar jewels. We used the ribbon stuff to do the bottom border of the tiers and yes I just used piping gel for everything.

I think the ribbon stuff would be much easier to use and remove than the little jewels that we used on the cake.
