I am making a tool cake later this month and need to color parts of the tools metal/silver. The tools are made of chocolate. I have silver paint (edible of course) for fondant and that works great but it won't stick to the chocolate. What do I use?
If I want metallic looking tools, I start out with gray colored choc. then after they are unmolded, use NuSilver luster dust (dry brushed) it looks great! You also can you hi-liter, but in this case, I think it's kind of a lot to put on there, I like to keep that product in moderation.
If you have questions, zip me a line,
I made a birthday cake for my son and used the chocolate tool mold for accents. I just tinted white chocolate for the "metal" areas of the tools with a little black to make a light grey then brushed on luster dust after they dried. A picture of his cake is in my gallery.
i paint choc with edible silver but mixing it with alcohol, whick dries or with oil, which doesnt but gives great coverage. i guess it depends if your moving the bits around alot.
