I made a unicorn cake this weekend and painted my fondant pieces with pearl dust/vanilla mixture. However, once it dried you could barely see the sparkle. What did I do wrong? Can you actually add some sort of shimmer to the fondant instead of painting it? If I want to paint it is there a better way to make it extra sparkly?
I LUV pearl dust!!!!
For some reason it didn't post the rest of my question!!! I painted the fondant with pearl dust but once it dried you could barely see the glitter! Is there anyway to actually make the fondant pearlized rather than painting it? Also, what did I do wrong with the painting? I mixed the pearl dust with vanilla and then painted it on.
