I need to finalise the details of my cake sometime soon.
I'm looking for ideas on how to incorporate some swarovski crystals onto my cake.
Anybody have any pics or ideas?

I haven't got any pictures, but I saw one once that had the crystals coming down the sides of the cake on wire from the top tier. It looked really nice. I've also seem them just scattered across the icing.
I guess you just need to make sure no-one eats one!

Not entirely sure, but you could do something like this and change the pearls for crystals I guess? I LOVED this cake when I was doing the wedding thing, and it just sprung to mind when you mentionede crystals...
Full of faith

Don't have any pictures but they can look good as your first initials on the cake!

Here are our swarovski cake toppers. They will stand on the top of the very level cake.Not a $300 topper I want to see broken. I would scream my head off lol.

We had all crystals hanging on our cake. My mother did them over a few months and also made the swarovski crystal heart for the top. Then the cake lady put them all in place. It looked stunning with the light hitting them. Like a waterfall.

whats your colour theme? You can always have a ribbon to match your colour theme with swarovski's glued on?
we also had swarovski crystal letters for our toppers

I'm a jewellery maker by hobby and I get this question a lot from would-be brides.
Swaro crystals come in all shapes and sizes and a plethora of colours. If you're creative enough, you can wire up some crystal branches and lay them about the cake or work them into the decoration. You can purchase the glue-backed crystals and decorate ribbon to put onto your cake. You can even buy diamonte style to press into your cake (though not recommended due to the fact that they are not edible and will cause internal damage if swallowed). You can make crystal flowers and use them as you please - I had a friend who had a boquet of crystal mixed with real flowers and a matching set for her cake. You can buy little crystal figurines for cake toppers if you want something a bit more extravagant.
There's seriously no end of ways to incorporate crystals into a cake.
