I've used the Shimmering Silver but sprayed in on black fondant in hopes that it would shine it up. No such luck. It really just turned it gray and wasn't really shiny at all. I'm assuming it would work better on a lighter color though.

I just bought the gold and silver I sprayed a faded dummy display cake with the gold and it was great.
Then I used the silver over a lavander to finish it does seem more like pearl but if it was used on white it would work better best thing was it didn't clog my airbrush.

I have the gold, silver, pearl, pink and blue. I've only tried the silver and pearl and loved both. I used the pearl spray on an entire ivory cake and also on a loop bow that was colored brown and it worked great. Currently i'm using the silver on some mardi gras gumpaste masks that I'm making on a cake and it's great because you can use a little for a little shimmer or a lot in stages and it gives the same look the silver non-edible highlighter gives. Love it and want every color!!!

I have the silver and I have to say it wasn't that good.I got better results with mixing my own silver and vodka!!

I've used the gold and silver and has worked fine. The only thing is that you have to shake them well. For the price I think it is well worth it. Beats having to mix up your own. I am ordering all the new colors as I can see using this more since it is already mixed. Has anyone tried the new edible image pattern strips?

I've gotten the pearl one from Bakery Craft and absolutely love it, I've been a mean, pearl spraying machine! lol

and you do have to shake them well, in between uses also.

and to keep my airbrush clear I clean it well before I put it away.

I also clean it around every 7th or 10th cupfull just in case.
