I am makng a cake out of wiltons long loaf pan. I am going to make it into a semi truck. I want to make the grill on the front of the truck and the smoke stacks that come up on each side of the truck look like chrome. I am planning on using those long stick cookies for the smoke stacks but my question is I am not sure how to make silver icing or what to use to cover the cookies to make them look silver. (like chrome). I have silver Pearl dust can I do something with that maybe? HELP!!! Thank you.
I have no idea, but I'm sure someone out there does
Cool cake idea too.
I recently made a fire truck cake with a friend (sorry, I haven't uploaded pics yet), and it had silver accents. I would cover the cookies in fondant and then paint them with a mixture of your silver Luster Dust and either a clear extract (like lemon) or alcohol (like vodka). For the grill, you can just cut out the appropriate size square and score lines in it, then paint it with the Luster Dust. Hope that helps!
See! I love this place
Thank you so much I appreciate the replies. That helped alot. Do you guys know what the difference in luster dust and pearl dust is? I bought pearl dust for another cake but didn't end up using it. I have not worked with either one yet. Thanks again. I love this site too. Everybody is so helpful.
How many people do you think this 16x4 long loaf pan will feed. Any ideas??? Thanks guys.
Well, a two-layer 4" cake would yield 8 1" X 2" X 4" slices, so a 16" X 4" cake would yield 32 slices.
