Wow. What an amazing idea! I'm very new to this site (and probably wouldn't be able to participate, I'm in Canada and I don't know how customs feels about packages with sharp looking items inside), and am floored by what a fantastic project this would be. What a unique idea!!

I would definately be interested in participating if possible, but would need a tutorial.

Congratulations again Jackie and Heath. Would love to participate, never done anything with blown or pulled sugar but willing to give it a try. Sign me up for that video or tutorial. Can't wait to see this cake completed.

Congratulations on setting the date! What an awesome idea to include all of us CC'ers in your special day. You guys rock!! Count me in on the either the blown sugar tutorial or a fondant/gumpaste piece, whatever the final decision is.

I'll keep following the post.

I certainly would love to create a blown sugar piece of art! Don't have experience with blown sugar but do with pulled sugar. Bring on the tutorial!

WOW! Seriously read this! Most everyone wants to participate and has few every have the experience! Where and who else would ever want people like that to do their cake? That says a lot about the 2 of you and your dedication to this site, the participants, everything!

Count me in. I want the tutorial as well. Thank you for blessing all of us with this opportunity to give a little back to all the great you have given out.

Oh, and just in time, too. I recently participated in a 3-day workshop of pulled and blown glass.

So, tell me, will your colors be the same as on the chandelier, or are you just using the style?

I would love to participate. Tell me what you want, and it's yours.

I'd love to do the topper, but I would need some advice on how to ship it.

This is going to be so much fun! Thanks for inviting us to share in your day this way!

if Canada/US customs doesn't confiscate my package at the border - I'M IN TOO!

personally though, I think the pulled/blown sugar is an uber-fragile and risky venture...I DO however like the idea of gum paste painted with metallic/shimmer etc to give a similar effect.

better decide soon though so we can get to work in what spare time we have left...

We will definitely be deciding in the next week! And working out all the possible details!

That is a beautiful chandelier - your cake will look fabulous !! If blown sugar isn't feasible, how about coloured gelatine balls / shapes ? They don't melt & are pretty sturdy ( dents are possible but if they're packed properly,that shouldn't be a problem) & they are light !! icon_biggrin.gif

As soon as I can I will post a photo of some I've done icon_biggrin.gif

It must be possible...there's a man who will make and ship blown sugar bulbs and other items from Canada...He was recommended by several CCers a year or so ago when blown sugar bulbs were at a peak.

As a trial thing, I'd be willing to ship a piece or two to see how they ship. I know the temperatures will be different and the humidity might not be optimal , but if items are packed with silica(?) it will reduce stickiness. I'm no master of the stuff but one cake I made with blown sugar bulbs traveled from NC to CA in the middle of Summer without damage....may have been a big stroke of luck.
