This ingenious product allows you to add pearls to your cakes and cupcakes, without having to use your fingers.
No longer will you have to painstakingly add pearls one by one using your hands, potentially leaving marks on the icing or dropping them on the floor.
With the Dragéekiss™ Pearl Applicator you can add pearls to your cakes, simply by squeezing the trigger.
The applicator is extremely easy to use. Simply unclip the tub that holds your pearls, lift the lid and fill with your chosen colour of pearls, then close the lid and clip back onto the applicator. There's even a little funnel included to help prevent any pearls spilling over when filling.
For best results we would recommend PME pearls as these are firm. Some pearls are softer and can even differ slightly in size, despite what the manufacturer states as their intended size, and these will not work as well as the hard sugar pearls.
The tub will hold more than 100 pearls at any one time so you won’t have to go back and constantly refill it. The tub holds 4mm and 5mm pearls which are the most often used.
By using the applicator rather than your fingers, it means you are much less likely to smudge your buttercream or sugarpaste designs, so not only is it much quicker to apply the pearls in the first place, it will also save you time as you won’t have to go back and fix any little mistakes. It also makes decorating borders much quicker as there is no time spent placing individual pearls by hand, just press the trigger and move on to the next one.
The applicator is spring loaded and comes with a rubber nozzle that stops more than one pearl from coming out at once. This allows for better control and accuracy when dispensing your pearls, again minimising any potential mishaps.
As well as cakes, the applicator is ideal for adding pearls to clothes or craft projects.
The DragéeKiss™ pearl applicator comes in a plastic casing that is easy to open and close and can be used to store your tool while not in use.
PLEASE NOTE: We would always recommend using PME pearls as other brands may cause issues when releasing the pearls.
Tips and advice when using your DragéeKiss™ Pearl Applicator
The pearls are getting stuck inside the tool even though 4mm/5mm pearls are being used.
The size and shape of pearls can differ slightly from some manufacturers which may cause them to get stuck. For best results and to prevent this, use PME pearls.
Too many pearls exit at once
This can happen if more than one pearl reaches the barrel part of the tool without the plunger being totally followed through. To fix, hold your DrageeKiss™ tool over you pot of pearls and squeeze the trigger all the way in. To help prevent this issue, ensure that the trigger is squeezed all the way down every time you wish to release a pearl and use the recommended 4mm PME pearls.
This can happen if the plunger did not return to the starting point, with the clip making contact with the guide pin, not allowing the pearl to be pushed into the nozzle. To resolve this, push the trigger all the way down and release.
