    I’m a rhinestone fan – but I’m wouldn’t want the topper to distract from the work on the cake.  Do you have a picture of those edible diamonds? or what it would kind of look like?

    I think the glitter looks very pretty, but I really like the rhinestones. My cake topper is rhinestones and its beautiful 🙂

    I really love the first cake topper picture, with glitter. I think since you have a lot of bling & things going on in your cake already, the topper with rhinestones would overwhelm it a little bit.

    I think the rhinestones would work great with the diamonds!

    Glitter!  The rhinestone thing can tend to look overkill.

    Glitter is more subtle, but still beautiful. Be sure to spray it with something to hold the glitter in place or you will eat it!

    I would be afraid of glitter falling off.  So I vote rhinestones.  At least you can see them and pick them off if something falls off.

    I think more than anything, you need to consider how much time you’re willing to put into the project.

    If you’re only willing to put a hour’s worth of work into this, you may want to go the glitter route. If you’re willing to put 3 – 5 hours worth of work (and a little more money), then go the rhinestone route.

    Personally, I like the rhinestones and actually strassed a pair of shoes (that took me 30 hours to complete). Although I love the look, if I could go back, I probably would have glittered because it’s ALOT less time consuming.

    Why not try both, extra bling! 🙂
