How Do I? Make Fondant Pearls.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have some extra fondant and would like to use it soon or make some pearls or other decorations with it that I could keep. How would I make pearls, apply the luster dust and store away until I need it. How long would I be able to save the pearls?

Thanks

You can store those pearls for a very long time, once fondant dries and gets hard it will last for ever.

Hi SweetnFlour, if you are storing fondant decorations, make sure it's NOT in an airtight box.  You would usually think airtight is better, but the experts recommend something like a shoe box for storing fondant decorations. The decorations will then harden nicely (instead of getting brittle and crumbly if kept in an airtight container) and will keep for up to a year anyway, thanks to all that sugar!

This is exactly how I make them - then shake them in a lidded container with a little lustre dust once they're dry to give them a pearlescent look.

Or you can use a pearl molder that makes about 6 inches at a time

Yay!! I knew CC would have the answer! I need these for a cake I'm making soon.

Ok I want to learn to make these as I hate the hard teeth-breaking store bought ones.

But Seriously.......You have to roll these by hand, One Pearl at a time ?????

 

(I've looked at the 'Earlene' tutorial, and several others. I'm missing on the part of 'how to roll them'.)

I use clay bead rollers, which are just like mini cake ball rollers.

BrandisBaked:  thanks for the info, I had to look them up on Amazon. The bead rollers are inexpensive, so I can give em a try.

 

ps: (You posted a lot of nice photos recently.....the brush embroidery really knocked my socks off !!!!)

Aw, thanks. Those are all old cakes though. Don't think there's anything there that's less that 4 or 5 years old. I really should post some updated stuff soon.
