I've been out of the cake decorating loop for a while and was just ordering supplies when I noticed something I hadn't seen before- lustre spray.

Does it just give your cake a sheen or is it intended for coloring the cake? I would love to give my cakes that sparkly look without investing in airbrushing equipment.

Lustre spray is from a company in the UK called PME.It comes in Pearl,Gold,Silver and Bronze.It smells divine also..Like cotton candy..However it is pricey..about $10.00 a small can.Globalsugarart sells it and other online stores as well.The pearl gives a wonderful sheen..The other colors are matt not translucent.

Thanks for your reply! icon_smile.gif Does it last very long? Is there something else that would give it a sheen, but be more economical?

If you have an airbrush they sell some for airbrush machines. They are more economical only if you own the airbrush.

It's lasts a while but an airbrush is more economical.I have a Kopykake Airmaster and I use the Americolor sheens all the time and you can buy them in big bottles.I peral spray nearly every cake so I use mine all the time.It sure is nice..I sprayed gold on a red Dragon this week..Really cool!!

Thanks for all of the replies. I only make a few cakes a year as gifts to family and friends. I'm hoping to start covering the cakes in fondant because I don't like the way my bc looks. Maybe if I start doing more cakes, I'll invest in the airbrushing system. I bet it's a lot of fun to use and I love the effect that it gives to cakes!
