Cake jewelry

Where can I find something like the "brooch" thing that's on this cake by Pink Cake Box:

I have a customer that wants a 3 tiered version of this cake so I need to find the sparkly thing to put on the bow. Thanks!

Michaels has started carrying some of the stuff like that now. I know there was a post a while back with several links to online sources too......
Knowledge is a candle that when shared, doubles the light, but the insecure person believes knowledge is a candle that is diminished when it is split between two wicks.

Is there a way to make one myself or is it something I have to buy?

Also do you suppose the Pink Cake Box lady just has those on hand or does the customer request a specific one?

I've never used cake jewelry before....but they are ordering the exact cake (minus a tier) so I guess I better figure out what goes on that bow. haha.

Whoa okay so I need to tell the client if they want a brooch they need to pay for it additionally? Or that maybe I can make something equivalent out of gumpaste...

Good to know.

i bet you could make one yourself if you want everything edible. You can use silver dragees and create one. they have many sizes of dragees. Look on 'the cakegirls' website. they have one wedding cake with the pink ribbon and bows that has edible brooches on them made from dragees.

I just might do that...I just now sent the customer the choice to either buy a real one or have me make something similar.

I made the ones on this cake, but was not happy with the isomalt, I could not get it clear. Everyone still loved them - isomalt center, dragees all around the isomalt.

Does the customer want the brooch to be a keepsake for the recipient of the cake? She can purchase an actual brooch and you can hot glue it onto a skewer long enough to go through the bow and to stick into the cake.

Kitagrl, Jen Dontz sells some brooch molds on her website (Sugar Delites: www.jenniferdontz.com), if you want to make them. I think I've also seen molds at GSA. HTH

Loucinda, those are lovely!! icon_smile.gif
