Two days in advance: Make pearls. Roll 117 fondant balls, 1/2 in. diameter. Let dry overnight. Using needle and dental floss, string together 6 strands using 12, 18, 19 (make 2 strands), 22 and 27 balls. Tie knots to join ends of each strand; trim off excess thread. Mix Pearl Dust with a small amount of vanilla; paint on pearls. Let dry overnight on waxed paper-covered board.
