I was taught with Candy melts. You melt Candy melts in the microwave and pour the melted candy into your jewel shaped molds. It is pretty easy!

You can also use hard candy mix poured into jewel molds as well if you want them to look more like glass.

If you want clear jewels, you will ahve to use a sugar called Isomalt and boil it. Then pour it into molds and let them cool.

If you get the white candy mold that's for hard candy, you can melt Jolly Ranchers in the microwave and use that to get the clear jewels. You have to work fast, though, because it cools off and gets hard quickly.

What's the best way to attach them to the cake?

I use a dab of corn syrup. Works great, and you can't see it through the gem unless you really get up close and stare.

Thanks, Misdawn! I'll give that a try. Tavyheather, I've only seen them online or at my local cake supply store. I've never seen them at a Michael's, Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, etc. If you don't want to order online and there aren't any other cake decorating supply stores in your area, you might ask your local store if they would order it for you. They don't always accommodate, but it never hurts to ask. You might also google for candy making supplies (as opposed to cake) in your area.
