Attaching LOTS of dragees to a cake side.
I have a request for a wedding cake coming up that has the bottom half of each tier completely covered in pink dragees. Much like this cake
My question is, what do you think the easiest and most secure way to do this would be?
My first thought is to smear a little royal on the fondant and push a handful on in sections but I worry that 1) they might pop off easily if I put too little or if I put too much they might have royal squished out all around them. 2) they would end up with space in between them instead of being touching/close together.
Has anyone done a cake like this or have any ideas? Im hoping to give it a little bit of a try when I order the dragees but I don’t want to waste a lot while I experiment because they are a little pricey and I’m going to need so many! Thank you for any responses!
