I'd actually like a color that resembles a silvery chrome. Is this possible? Where I shop, there is no icing color called "silver." I tried using silver pearl dust - it worked okay, but can't get that sheen - maybe I should paint the icing over with the pearl dust paint after it dries?
What do you guys think? Thanks for any help!
Whenever I need a shiny silver, I mix silver luster dust with some lemon juice or clear vanilla and paint the royal icing decorations. I sometimes tint the icing gray and then paint it.
You got it. Paint it after the royal dries. Maybe do two coats.
Nic Lodge has a thing where you use
2 teaspoons 10x
2 teaspoons gold or silver
1 teaspoon piping gel
Mix in the order given--add the alcohol to get a stiff paste--it's beautiful for piping pure gold or silver. You can keep any leftover in the frige indefinitely.
Thanks, guys. Good tip about tinting the icing gray first. K8Memphis: so I got a dumb question. What's 10x?
So sorry, my bad, powdered sugar.
