Edible pearls for cake decorating

sam gagnon Mar 30, 2010 09:27 PM

Hi there,

I am doing my friends wedding cake and she wants pearls on her cake.. i dont want to choke anyone with buying plastic pearls so i am looking for somewhere to buy edible pearls. All the ones i have found are all online and in the US and i hate to pay for the ridiculous tax charges that come up when buying anything from the US.

Hoping there is an answer out there! :)

      You can get it at Michaels or any baking supply store. One of my favorites is Scoop and Save but it's Langley. Highly recommended if you're planning on making a wedding cake. They have pretty much everything you need to make a wedding cake and more.

          Scope'n save will definitely have it. I've purchased them there before. Sorry about Michaels, I swear I've seen it there before.

              Maybe Sugar Art in Steveston Village?

              I may have seen them ("dragees" and pearls) at Gourmet Warehouse.
              You can get them online from Golda's Kitchen which is based in Canada:

              You can also try Ravensbergen in Port Coquitlam
