Adding glamour and glitz to Cakes!
Cake jewellery adds a touch of sparkle and luxury to cakes – use on its own or combined with sugar decorations to make eye-catching centerpieces. The beading world is seductive, all those wonderful, colours, shapes, choices and possibilities. If you have never tried cake jewellery before we hope that Lindy’s cakes below will inspire you to try your first garland, fountain or jewellery crown. The popularity of this decorating style has lead to Lindy writing step by step instructions in her books, and producing a cake jewellery DVD.
Sparkle and luxury – cakes that have that WOW factor!
“I really enjoy creating cake jewellery for my cakes, whether the cakes are large multi-tiered wedding cakes or petite individual mini cakes. I find making cake jewellery very therapeutic and love the fact that because the decorations can be made in advance there are no last minute time pressures!
Choosing the beads and wires is all part of the fun… they can be used to complement a cake design or used in their own right as the principle decoration.
Just remember that all cake jewellery should be removed from the cake before cutting and that non edible beads or crystals should NEVER be stuck directly onto the icing of a cake” Lindy
