Airbrush it...I did a cake recently using warm brown/gold sheen.. I liked the way the color came out, even though the shimmer does not show up well in the picture..

When you say airbrush..do you mean with a actual airbrush machine or is this a technique or edible spray paint in a can type thing??

Yes, an airbrush machine. I used warm brown/gold sheen in that particular case, but you could mix any of the colors with any one of the new pearl, gold, or silver sheens I imagine.. There are some canned sprays out now that others have used, but I don't know much about them. hth
