Another question from a newbie-

What is the best technique to use shimmer dust on fondant. If I'm going to make a large bow but want to use shimmer dust do I shake it on or paint it on or what?

You can paint it on with a wet paint brush. Or you can paint it on with a dry paint brush.

I prefer the dry look myself.

I actually have a big brush (it's specifically for cakes) but it looks like a blush brush. All the powder is inside the handle and then you pump the top of it and it sprays the dust everywhere. It's amazing and so fast. The problem is that my son lost it and I'm not sure who made it - or I would tell you. But it is awesome! If you ever see one, GET IT!!
