Hey all,

Need help, going to be doing a tasting with a bride. She wants to have a "ribbon" around the bottom of each buttercream tier. She doesn't want to use real ribbon, and wants a shiny silver or platinum color. Any suggestions on how I can achieve this?

You can paint your fondant ribbon with silver Pearl Dust mixed with vanilla.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. I figured it could be done but wasn't quite sure how.

SugarShack - the Nu Silver you were talking about, where can I get that from?

again, thanks for all of the suggestions! I love how friendly and helpful everyone here at CC is. What a great community to belong to!
