This maybe a real simple question but im not sure. I need to make silver stars. So do i just roll out fondant stars and "dust" them with silver dust or is there more to it?

Yes, that is one way. If you want a more solid silver you need to make a paint using pure clear vanilla(not imitation) or vodka and the silver powder. Use small quantities/ The vodka or clear real vanilla has alcohol in it that makes your paint dry quickly.

also, if you colour your fondant grey first, you will get a stronger result.

Good idea. Why didn't I think of that??? Sometimes such simple things escape us, that's why there is no such thing as silly questions.

Me again. So...do you color your fondant golden yellow to get a more intense metallic gold?

If you want a brilliant silver, like a dragee silver, paint with hi-liter dust. If you need help, feel free to PM me.

Question about the hi-lighter dust...I know it's not edible, is there something I could use that has the same effect and is non-toxic?

Thanks, Iva

yup, yellow fondant with gold dust gives a much stronger result than white fondant.
