I had a bride show up with a pic of those last year and then got pissy at me when I quoted her a price. She didn't want to pay more than $3.00 apiece.

She then proceeded to post on the local wedding forum saying I was way over-priced (and rude... because I didn't agree to her price).


These are beautiful - did you see how much they are? 9 British pounds each for the small (1 serving) which comes out to be about $14.35 in US dollars...the large (3 servings) are 12 British pounds and she wanted them for $3.00 each! Crazy!

they are beautiful, but in the article below say's something about she weaves thin silk and weave's into balls, so everyone has a piece of cake, it might be the ones in the other picture but it sounds like they hold the cake inside.

No, it says the original art, that the cakes are modeled after involves weaving silk. The cakes have nothing to do with weaving or silk.

they are too big to be cake pops. maybe they are made in mini ball pans but how do you cover them in fondant (assuming it is fondant) and get the fondant so smooth?? I hope someone here knows how to do them!!

They're just beautiful! I too would love to know how this is done!

I also wonder if these are made with the wilton ball pan?

As I haven't seen this pan in real life would it be possible to get to of the pan, over fill one and clamp the other on top to make a round ball?

And as much as they are beautiful they are not as complicated as the real art.

Look at the real balls with the ribbon woven

These definately go in my "have to make" list.

How do you thing the icing is done? How do it have that shimmer effect?

Looks exactly like the shimmer airbrush sprays I use.

Being as there are various sizes, I think that the larger of them are a mini ball pan, the smaller more varied sized I would thin it easiest to do 'cake-pop' style. The smoothness looks to be either white choclolate, modeling chocolate or liquid fondant (melted). and I agree with _Jamie_, looks like a shimmer airbrush to get the perfect uniform glimmer. I think I'm going to give these a try for the holidays!

i was looking at those ornaments in the links and they are wonderful, id like to try them.
Are the tops of the cupcakes covered in fondant or reall smooth buttercream?

You can make these with chocolate, dye the chocolate with oil based color and brush them with pearl dust. You can buy the round plastic balls in craft stores to use for your mold.
