That is such a good idea!  I think cakes with the candy pearls are beautiful but always wonder how it would be eaten!

they are perfect circles cut from fondant. pinch in the center of the circle so it kind of bunches and then cluster the little bunches all over the cake.

What an excellent idea! Thank you...makes good sense to do a ribbon of the dragees...I've found it to be quite a pain in getting the right uniformity when applying them by sprinkling/pressing them on the cake. :)
