Okay, you want a little bling or sparkle for a cake, and don't know where to begin? There are special molds made just for that - molds for creating edible candy jewels for pastry.
Depending on the material of the mold, they can be made with just about anything. If they are high temperature molds you can use them with a boiled sugar or isomalt mixture for hard candy-style diamonds and jewels. The molds can be made by yourself at home, too. If you feel a little less ambitious but still want sparkle, purchase ready-made candy diamonds and jewels to easily decorate your cake.
