Dragee. Fancy word, right? It's really just a little sugar-coated piece of candy used in cake decorating. I love dragees so much. There is so much that you can do with them and they come in silver, pearl, gold and just about every color that your pretty little heart desires. Did you know that Dragees originated from sugar-coated pills that you would find in an Apothecary? A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, right? Like I always say, Cake was meant to be medicine for the soul. :) Here are some cakes that I have done to show you how you can use Dragees at home. Happy Drageeing!
LOOK! I even used dragees here to add some bling to this gumpaste bow. :)
