I had a realization yesterday. Or maybe the day before yesterday. And then I remembered it today.
Once upon a time I showed you this:
But I never showed you these:
For Lizzy’s birthday, I made her one owl cupcake, but I also made her some cupcakes with my first attempt at fondant, and in the middle of the flower cupcakes, I featured these:
I was innocently minding my own business on Facebook one day when I noticed an ad on the sidebar for Cake Crystals. I was intrigued, so I took a look. Then I was interested. I sent a pleading e-mail to the company begging them to let me try some and tell you about them, and they happily obliged!
These lovely “diamonds” are edible, too! They aren’t sticky, and you can polish them with a little cooking oil to make them shine (my photos didn’t do the shine justice).
I think these would be a lot of fun to use as actual diamonds on a cake or cookies, but I haven’t found the perfect opportunity to make that type of cake just yet. My package came with plenty more, so I’ll let you know what I figure out. Let me know if you have some other fun ideas for me to use these!
