Cake jewelry is a popular item that Brides call me for daily. Although M&J Trimming don’t sell premade cake jewelry, you can easily use M&J products to create your own custom look. When I was browsing through M&J for ideas for the blog, I noticed these gorgeous crystal spray and pearl sprays. I was inspired immediately!
Take the sprays and arrange them so the stems are all lined up and the sprays create nice large flower look. Tape the top, middle, and bottom to secure for wiring. Take a piece of beading wire and wrap it (starting at the top) around the stems until you reach the bottom, clip the excess wire. You can then simply place the new large stem directly into the cake.
Another way to do it is to take one stem, surround it with 4 stems positioned slightly lower (by 1″), position the remaining 7 stems around those 4 another inch lower. Tape and wrap the same way as before. This will create a tiered firework effect with the sprays.
If you want a fuller look, try 2 or even 3 packs of sprays. You can also mix the rhinestone sprays with the pearl sprays for a multi-textured look. Rhinestone buttons can be added to the tiers with ribbon to carry the cake topper look to the rest of the cake.
