Hi sam_1955, do you mean like this:

I am not sure whether these are just granulated sugar crystals or if they are something that has to be bought at a sugarcraft supplier, you could pm the person and ask. HTH

Lots of little diamonds or just one big cake cut into diamond shape with something on it to make it glitter?[/quote]

If you are looking for the effect of the link mmmmCake listed, you can use the Sparkling sugar by wilton. I did this for a Chrsitmas cake and I love the look. I actually mixed the sparkline sugar with a finer sanding sugar because I didn't have enough of just one and it worked great.

I´m pretty sure the cake is covered with edible flakes/sparkles. Some brands call them flakes, some brands call them sparkles. Make sure you use edible glue as they melt in water.

It's actually stated in the description that the cake is covered in sugar.

Makes a lovely presentation, but personally, I wouldn't like the texture for eating.

Blake's cake, I felt the same way about the texture but I did a pretty thick layer of buttercream on mine and it really didn't effect the texture because once the piece is cut you aren't getting that much sugar.

I would like to use sugar to make a cake sparkle. How do I put colored sugar on the sides so I dont have huge gaps and make a mess. I know using room temp. buttercream works better than fondant.
