This cake was done for a photo shoot...It had gold luster dust painted on the fondant and colored pearls on the surface of the cake. I also put some flecks of gold leaf on it here and there.
It also had sugar sequins on the surface along with the pearls. Here's the how-to on how I made those: http://www.acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2012/08/gumpaste-sequins-tutorial.html
