How to Make Sugar Pearls

I know they say that diamonds are a girls best friend but I am quite partial to a pearl myself. Something about that old world feel and a gentle nod to my British heritage of pearls and a twin set! Pearls are just a gorgeous addition to a cake and hugely popular in wedding cake designs. But if you don’t want to spend money on buying those tiny little annoying ones that drop everywhere or if you need some custom sizes you want to be able to make your own.

Best of all, they are super easy and take no time at all.
