I actually used the sanding sugar here because this is a dummy cake. I wanted to showcase something besides fondant to my brides, so I started covering the tiers with royal icing. I wasn't very happy with the look, so out came the sanding sugar. One note: when applying this, it can get messy fast. I recommend sitting your cake inside a large sheet pan as you put the sanding sugar on - it will catch the "runoff" and you can scoop it up and use it again.
