Adding rhinestone trim to wedding cake

HELP!!! How does one add and keep a four strand rhinestone trim on each tier? I don't want the trim to fall off or pull away from the frosting (buttercream) or fondant covering.

Where can I find application method(s) for this type of trim?

Crystal Rhinestone Cake Trim Banding
by: Jennifer

If you buy the right kind of trim, you don't need to do anything more than press the trim into the icing. If you are working with fondant, you may want to consider using a thin layer of icing to hold it in place, as the fondant sometimes is rather stiff. We carry high quality crystal trim for cakes at the best price you will find. Please visit our website: or email us at

tiara to stay on cake

If you are using a actual tiara, you may try adding floral wire to the tiara as a type of pick to insert into the cake and keep it on the cake. Without knowing the positioning of the cake and the material that you are using. If is difficult to help with any suggestions. Hope this helps.
