That’s really cute! I’d love to see if any brides have used that too! Could it possibly be made out of edible rhinestones?

Ahh sorry – the other inspirational pic (with the brooches on ribbon) doesn’t seem to want me to upload it πŸ™

We did it for my daughter’s weding last June. I bought the brooches from several Etsy sellers (vintage) and the baker used the ones that fit the best. We wanted hers in buttercream,so she used satin ribbon and attached them to that.

I’m a huge collector of vintage rhinestone earrings and brooches and plan to use them on my cake, in my flowers and maybe in a few other strategic spots.  You can find vintage on ebay, your local antique or collectible shop or even at a good yard sale if you are lucky!

in the picture of the cake i want the brooches are edible, but to have the baker do that would have cost a ton of money so i found brooches online at whiteaisle.com. the baker told us that any brooch would work well, they didn’t have to be some type of “special” cake brooch! πŸ™‚

here are the ones i went with:

They are very lovely but I have only one concern; crystal – which many vintage brooches are made of – contains lead, and for that reason, are not allowed to be used in jewelry designed for children. I wouldn’t want to risk putting it so close to something that all my guests are going to be eating. Stay away from crystal and stick with rhinestones.

Here is one that I absolutely ADORE.  We’re going with buttercream, so we’ll obviously have to do something different with the white detail than in the fondant, but I think the ivory base will really make our white love birds cake topper stand out.  I’ve kind of started looking online for a vintage brooch for the bow, but nothing has really given me that “gotta have it” feeling.  Any ideas?  I’ve looked on ebay, but think etsy will be my next internet stop πŸ˜‰

stop πŸ˜‰

@bloodgo1 – Where did you find that beauty?

… Answered my own question!  It was in your post.  Shame on me for skimming right past the text to look at the brooch!!!
