Hey everyone,
i have a client that would like diamante trim around the bottom of her tiers. She wants ribbon on first and then the diamantes ontop of the ribbon.. Any ideas.. I have attached the picture that she gave me..
Thanks Rach

Hi Rach

I did a wedding cake similar (see my photos) - square tiers with silver ribbon and rectangular diamantes on a black thinner ribbon which was provided by the bride.

She actually wanted the beading sitting UNDER the ribbon, so it was a bit harder to apply it all nice and straight.

You can buy the diamante stuff by the meter/yard. Use it like a ribbon.

Evoir, where so you buy the diamantes? I can't find an Australian supplier...

The bride or that particular cake I mentioned got the rectangular/round diamante thread at Spotlight, which I think are everywhere (?? not sure now!). I know also that Cupids (Cake Dec Supplies) in Newcastle sell stuff by the meter but it is heinously expensive...like $35 a metre! But it looks more like the OP's pictured cake's diamantes...very sparkly.

Thanks, I'll check those out. I have found somewhere in the US that sells them but the prices are insane!

You might try a website called rhinestonesunlimited.com

They have rhinestone banding in several sizes and widths, and they are all gorgeous. I use the three row bands all the time. But they are also pretty pricey. Although, not as high as retail.

Good luck!!!

No fabric store carries rhinestone banding in my area. I have to have it shipped in. I'm getting beautiful 3 row banding for $18/yard.

For those of you in the US and |Canada, if your Walmart has a fabirc department, check there. They sell it by the package and by the yard/metre. Fabricland in Canada sells it also.
