I have a pot luck coming up and need ideas for a cake to make. I was thinking of something along the food idea. I looked in the gallery but nothing looks big enough to feed 40-60 people. Then I was looking and thinking about the crockpot with the chili in it but I don't know how to get the real silver look/color. Any ideas?
Fondant with luster dust. ?? Good luck.
I did cheeseburger cupcakes for a BBQ that were a hit. And for the silver look try AmeriColor Air Brush.....Silver Sheen....I am just getting ready to upload the picture of the cake I did yesterday, it is a diamond ring and I used the silver sheen and it really did come out silver. I will upload it now , check it out in my photos.
I second luster dust. You can get it in a spray can, made by PME. Lowest I found was $8.74 at selfservebaker.com. Spray will go farther if you use grey fondant.
Question - how are you going to make the chili?
I was gonna try to crumble up some chocolate cake and pile it on the top.
does anyone else have any other ideas?
I love the spaghetti and meatball cakes - there are a bunch of different ones in the gallery. There is one that was in a catering tray - looked very realistic! Also, I saw someone make a corn on the cob cupcake, very cute but that would be a lot of work for 50 cup cakes!
