I want to ice a Christmas cake in "shimmery" white icing. Can I actually add dust to the BC and then ice, or ice, then sprinkle dust???? Not using MMF, etc. Thanks for your help to this seemingly simple question!
I would think the dust would get "lost" if it was mixed into the icing. Probably better to dust the finished cake. If you just need an overall shimmer I would think dipping a soft paintbrush in the dust and blowing it all over the cake would do the trick.
You can airbrush the luster dust onto the icing once it's on the cake. Mix it with a little bit of lemon extract or Everclear so that it goes through the airbrush.
No airbrush...yet. I'll give the paintbrush trick a try. Thanks for your help!!!
I have Pearl liquid for my airbrush.I use that to give my BC a pearly look.
