I use a sliver glaze or luster dust on fondant or gum paste.....not sure about butter cream. Hope this helps.

buttercream: tint icing gray, then follow up by airbrushing with silver airbrush color.
fondant: same thing really, though likely you can just airbrush. I use Lucks silver Shimmer airbrush color.

you could use luster dust, but messy and timeconsuming to cover large areas this way, and not nearly as smooth a finish.

I use Americacolor silver airbrush color for large areas of BC and fondant. Silver luster dust mixed with everclear or vodka and a paint brush for smaller areas.
