I really love the look of luster dust when I use it on fondant and with royal icing. Is there any way I can use it with buttercream? Would I still 'paint' it on? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If the cake has been frozen for a bit to firm up the buttercream, then yes you can paint it with lustre, if you are quick and it's a low humidity day. You can also airbrush lustre onto buttercream without chilling it first etc...

I've done it on crusting buttercream (non froozen). You just need a soft brush and a gentle touch.

I just tried this for the first time! I air dried my roses (I used the air dried buttercream recipe on this site) and then I painted my roses with silver luster dust. They were a huge hit and it was really easy to paint the hardened flowers. The pic is in my photos if you want to see the result.
