Hello! I have a bride that would like a pewter coloured fondant ribbon around the cake. Any ideas how to get that colour? Thanks!

You could add just a touch of black petal dust to silver highlighter. If she wants the aged pewter look I would use the silver highlighter and then dust over that with the black making the edges or any crevices in the design darker.

I'm not sure what you mean by "silver highlighter". Can you explain it? Thanks.

Highlighter is a type of luster dust. It is brighter and has a crome like finish. I used it on my supergirl cake. The shiny silver. And if I have dusted some black petal dust around it it would give an aged pewter look like what you are looking for. There a different ways to apply this. Some mix with vodka and paint on. I got better results heavily dry dusting freshly made fondant. You can buy it here.
