I have silver luster dust. If I roll all my MMF pearls and dust them with silver luster lust.....will I still achieve a pearl like appearance or will I get silver pearls?? I really would hate to have to run back to micheals....again.
Any tips?? I am thinking about making them tomorrow so hopefully someone knows the answer by then! I love CC and I know I have been full of questions the last few days but I am doing a cake that is WAY out of my safety zone. I just want to make sure it turns out great! Hi my name is cakebaker1978 and I am a CC addict!!!!heehee
I can't remember how dark the silver is. My suggestion would be to try a couple and see how silvery they come out.
i tried this and it came out just kind of a silvery sheen, the one i tried was yellow, and you could still tell. i would try it and see!
What if you brush a really light gray onto the pearl, then coat it in luster dust? Just a thought.
I used silver luster dust when making different collered fondant decorations and you could tell it was silver. It may look different on white fondant.
The silver luster dust you get in Michaels is it the Wilton brand? Its pretty close to the super pearl luster dust, not the silver dust from CK. It still wont achieve the right sheen you want for a pearl. Depends on how much it matters to you but if you want authentic looking pearls you really need to use the super pear luster dust.
Start with a grey fondant. It should help. I've never used the Wilton's.
if you want it to look like real pearls.... you need to use the super pearl . not the silver luster dust... that is my opinion... hth
I decided to go with the silver luster dust. I used it on white MMF pearls/balls. It isn't really pearl looking BUT, I achieved a really nice shimmer on the white pearls almost frosty looking! Looks nice and since I am using them on a winter themed cake, I think it will work out great! Thank you so much for all your help!!
