Cake trend alert: Sequins!
I have to confess that when it comes to sequins, I can be a bit intimidated. The reason is that I think that anything embellished by sequins falls in one of two categories: 1. Glorious or 2. Tacky....there is no middle ground!
Sequin adorned cakes have been in my mind for a while...I have researched and tried different techniques, and hadn't found a method with which I felt comfortable....until now!
As you may now by now, I am a big fan of rolled chocolate, not fondant. The first reason is taste...I make cakes, delicious cakes!. The second is workability!
So when I decided to jump in the "sequin's wagon", I thought about my trustworthy chocolate, and tested making my own chocolate sequins!
I will be posting a full image tutorial on Friday, come back and check it out...and jump in this Sequin's wagon with me!
