I have tried to make silver paint using luster dust and vodka. All I got was a dull gray mess. I used Wilton luster dust, so I thought the quality would be okay. What did I do wrong??????
The very best silver colors I've gotten is when I've used the nu-silver color of lustre dust mixed with vodka. You can order it online. Global sugar art carries it if I'm not mistaken as well as tons of other on-line cake suppliers if you don't have a cake decorating store near you. My experience with Wilton luster dusts has not been favorable at all! This is a cake that I used nu-silver on.
Not to steal your thread here but . . . I was just wondering this last night - how to make edible paint. So it's just luster dust and vodka?
Yes, it really is!
<<adding to list of things to try>>
The wilton stuff is not going to work. I agree with Mencked, I made a cake with snowflakes and tried the wilton silver and it was palin ugly gray. try the global suagr art or anything you can find in a cake supply store
Thanks to "Mencked".
I've ordered the nu-silver from Global Sugar.
And the cake is beautiful....maybe someday I'll get that good!
