Hi everybody. I am sooo hoping someone can help me on this. I have a football cake that my client needs for tomorrow - not a big deal except for the fact that I have never made silver icing and part of the helmet has silver in it. I am drawing it on a sheet cake....I didn't know if I should try using dust but I have never used any dusts successfully. I used extract with it but I don't think I used enough "dust" ...not quite sure icon_confused.gif

Can anyone help me?

Indydebi you are too awesome!! Thank you so much. I now have silver gel. Quick question though..the gel worked for this cake but if I actually need to make silver bc icing how would I do that? I found out mixing white bc with the gel doesn't work icon_lol.gif . Any suggestions?

Gold luster dust mixed with vodka ... then mixed with white BC. YOu can add some dark yellow or Americolor Gold if it's not "gold" enough for you.

I did it on this cake: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=581763

I have some rum. Do you think that'll work? I'm not a vodka drinker so I don't have any on hand lol.
