What type of dust is best for brushing on a fondant covered cake? Or is there a link describing the differences of each kind of dust. I have a cobalt blue wedding cake with stars and want a dust that will make the blue fondant sparkle/glitter like the universe/background stars.
At the cake supply store where I live, they have pearl dust, then luster dust for sparkle, then they have sparkle dust, which is very glittery and costs three times as much as the others. I have used the luster dust to give a sparkly effect to the whole cake, and it worked really well. They make a really pretty blue. HTH
who makes a pretty blue?
thanks for the info!
I've found that brushing luster dust on fondantcan sometimes mute the color--better make a test before you do the actual cake. I've used Americolor royal blue with a little purple added to get cobalt--agsin, test a small portion.
