Giveaway: Cake Crystals

A cake from the local grocery store bakery is a fine way to celebrate a birthday. But what if you could take it to the next level? You know, bling it up a little? Now you can!


Cake Crystals are a new product this year that can take an ordinary cake to the next level. It is hard enough to make a delicious cake, let alone one that is beautiful. Most of us just don't have the time to mess with tints and tips the night before our loved one's special day. In steps Cake Crystals.


And thank goodness too! I promise I had every intention of making cute cupcakes for Charlotte's party. Then, I realized that I had less than 14 hours to party time and hadn't even cracked one egg. In steps the local grocery bakery and out comes the Cake Crystals. I was able to take their cake to the next level of cuteness. They have the texture of a lollipop but don't get melty or sticky in the heat. And the flavor is a vague fruity flavor that doesn't interfere with a great chocolate cake.

This is what the company says about Cake Crystals:
Available in five different colors and flavors, Cake Crystals are the _only_ three dimensional cake decorating accessories that look like real jewels! The beautiful gem-like designs are not only beautiful, they are edible, making these cake crystals the ONLY crystal you should chose for your next decorating project.

I received a 2 oz back of assorted crystals and they went a long way. I still have enough left to do one more cake. Cake Crystals is also offering to give away 5 more bags to 5 lucky readers of Family Musings.

  41. On the cake crystals website you can see the little 'jewels' so much better! How charming! I would use them as tasty centers on the floral buds on my next birthday cake! I especially like the combination of the lemon and vanilla cake crystals for decorating.

  47. I visited Cake Crystals and thought everyone was really creative with the ways they used them!

    I would use these for a party, and make mini cupcakes, pipe frosting in the shape of a flower, and use a crystal for the center of the flower. :)
