I would like to make a platinum, silverish colored buttercream icing for wedding cupcakes. Any tips? Ideas? Color combos? (I'll settle for a grayish tone.) Thanks in advance!
I just read in a Wilton book to make a silver color combined a small amout of black with a blue. Haven't tried it myself, but I hope this helps.
Why not do them light gray, then airbrush with silver sheen by americolor or silver shimmer by lucks?
Mark may have something there with that shimmer stuff I've never used it. But I would not do grey icing it makes food look like sh*t. Just my opinion. I mean if you're doing a big wheel truck grey all the way but wedding cupcakes? Maybe suggest some dragees or something else that's really silver.
Just my grey thoughts for you.
I just got some Wilton shimmer dust. The 3-pack came with silver, gold, and pearl. I wonder if you could literally mix the silver dust into your BC. You may have to use a few containers, but it just might work. Either that, or use the dust directly on top of crusted BC.
I accidently made silver roses on an Anniversary cake several years ago. I was trying making them a pale lavender. I used Wilton's lavender paste color to make the icing for the roses and when finished delivered to my friend who was hosting the anniversary party. She called me the next day to tell me that everyone loved the silver roses. What a surprise that was for me. Apparently, being exposed to air made them fade and look silvery.
