Ideas to make this less time consuming?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Bride likes this design.
Looks like about 5 million dragees and sugar pearls glued on individually to me (slight exaggeration, probably only 4 million. icon_lol.gif just kidding.)

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how a less time consuming way to decorate this cake.

The only dragees you have to place individually would be the bigger ones and there aren't so many of those. I would take a thin wavy (at least not straight) band of fondant and paint it with piping gel, then just press it onto a plate full of the small dragees (assorted colors) then attach that to the cake. Then you just have to finish up with the larger ones.

It won't take so long - actually, there's only about 1.5 million of them. icon_wink.gif

Yup - that's exactly how I did it for this cake:

Inside this fat body, there's a thin woman screaming to get out...... but I can usually shut her up with chocolate!

I just did this cake, I used pearls and I piped some dots, but it still took along time!
