Pearl Cake …from Measuring Spoons!

Decorating with found objects is always a pleasant surprise.  I made this cake with a set of measuring spoons!  I had to make a [last minute] cake (sense a pattern?) and I needed a cake decorating idea for an 80th birthday cake.  I looked around… and voila!

edible pearls!

Measuring spoons to the rescue!

Pretty neat, huh? I added some golden fondant swirls, which mimic piped swirls, painted in gold. This is a great option, especially if you don’t have a steady piping hand, or the time to wait for icing to dry.

Here’s a video on how I made the decorations for this cake!:

Well, I finally decided to put myself in the video! Yes, I’m a real person! What do you think? More of me in the vids? ~_^


  • Gumpaste, or Fondant mixed with Tylose Powder
  • Measuring spoons
  • Luster dust, pearl dust
  • Lemon extract
  • Paint brushes
  • Royal icing
  • Fondant-covered cake to decorate!

    Hi Corinne!! No, I painted the cake first, then added the pearls. The How-To part of the video was just an example on a different cake. ^_^ Thanks for checking out the blog!

    I love this idea. You are so talented and creative. How did you paint the cake? with just a brush? did you use food coloring or color dust?
