What look exactly? More opaque in color or thicker? The gelatin sequin tutorial I saw had really rich colors that she achieved using airbrush coloring in her gelatin.

I should add my wedding is still a year away and all but one if the cake tiers will be dummies so I have plenty of time up my sleeve to get this done

Actually, I'm pretty sure they're just little dics of gp or fondant, and that painstaking method has already been described above. You can see that the tiers aren't entirely coveredeither, there are areas that ddon't have them, so looks like they were loosely applied in a random fashion. I dunno....it's pretty, but one of those simple looks, with a not so simple method (time wise). Meaning...$$$, either in labor, or materials (pre made)

It's literally just tiny circles of fondant/gumpaste painted gold and stuck on to the cake. I can't imagine anyone really needs a tutorial for that.

You could make it easier on yourself by making larger sequins, or just sticking the sequins on by the handful which is the look in the caketress photos.

One of the bakeries that is known for this (Sweet Element) charges $20 a portion for this look, that should tell you something about the amount of work involved.

I was under the impression they were gelatin sequins based on not looking at it myself, and going by what previous posters replied with as well. Tiny little bits of fondant or gp they are....couldn't be simpler.

Shoot, you could buy the premade bottles of large colored sprinkles, they're usually rainbow colors or pastel, and airbrush those.

Yeah, I'd just re-color pre-made candy confetti.

That was my thought, too!  Maybe use the flat circles and include some different sized small round ones, too, to give it more dimension?

 

Get them on the cake then get the CK Gold Highlighter going through your airbrush.

 

PS I'm the one who posted the question about edible gold sequins (gelatin) awhile back.  I watched the tutorial and they came out AMAZING, but definitely not the look you're going for.

I did a tutorial on my blog about how I do those, and they're a pain in the butt. Totally easy to do, but they take forever. I used a large round tip to cut out the big circles, then  used a smaller round tip to cut out the teeny hole in the middle. That looks better than poking a pinhole in them.  I used gumpaste, but you could  it with gelatin. Gumpaste won't dissolve or get all gummy and stick together as bad as gelatin will if you get it damp, though.

The tutorial I watched (can't recall off the top of my head) used hole punches.  I bought two different sized hold punches and a larger (1/2" or 3/4" - can't recall that, either) hole punch/die cutter in the scrapbooking section.  It was very quick work, but still time consuming since I needed so many.  They worked beautifully!

Wouldn't be surprised if that's what she did actually.
