Hi Dexter

First here is link where you can get food safe cake jewellry http://www.lindyscakes.co.uk/shop/Cake-Jewellery/.
Paul uses diamantes in some of the tutorials eg Jimmy Choo shoe box and in the wedding cake tutorials so you’ll be able to see how he sticks the bling on. Paul also advises that the recipient must take responsibility for the non edible products placed on the cake. You can get edible gems as well, I get mine from the cake decorating company in Nottingham, google them in and you’ll see them. Hope this information is of help.

There are a few different options. The first is to use edible gems and if you look at the recent question ‘mini edible dimonds’ there’s details of a website that sells them. If you want to use real diamantes then it’s probably easiest to buy the ones that are on wires. You will find these in craft shops, wedding favour shops or Hobbycraft (make it very clear to the recipient to remove these before serving!). Others may have different suggestions but hopefully that will point you in the right direction!
