I ordered 3 different sizes of pink pearls for a wedding cake that I am doing and they are 3 different shades of pink. What can I do to make them at least kind of the same shade?
Have you tried Luster Dust or Pearl Dust?
Yup...roll them around in a baggie with a bit of pearl dust.The hues will be less noticable but I think it looks nice on a cake with different subtle shades.
Haven't tried anything yet. Wanted advice first. Right know they are far from different subtle shades.
I have done this by first dampening them in vodka then putting them in a plastic bowl with the color you want replace the lid and shake them up then pour them onto a paper towel and let them dry.
Vodka really? Does it color them good?
At a recent cake club meeting I attended they put some of these in a strainer, ran under the water faucet for a second and poured them out on paper towelling to dry. After a few minutes on the paper towels they were put in a container w/luster dust and rolled around. They picked up the color great. Really lets you go crazy with whatever colors you want to make them.
The vodka acts as a liquid to get them wet enough to grab the luster dust then it evaporates so they dry quickly without disolving or getting really sticky.
