How can I color fondant silver? Someone wants a silver and black fondant covered cake and I can't remember how to get a silver color on the fondant. TIA

Airbrush colors or you can dust black fondant with silver or pearl.

Or if you don't have an airbrush, I've done white painted with silver luster dust. I should have done gray painted with the silver luster dust because the white took several coats to get the silver I wanted. Good luck!

I just needed silver for a cake last week. I tinted white fondat a very light grey (used a very, very small amount of black) and then dusted it with silver petal dust, worked perfectly.

I am working on silver gumpaste right now, and I would think it would work the same on fondant. Well, actually I was going for a chrome look, but the principle is the same. I mixed three colors: pewter, nu silver and super pearl. Very nice effect.

I tinted white gumpaste a medium gray, then mixed luster dust with vodka and painted it on. I had to keep adding drops of vodka because it dried out quickly in the little pot.

I didn't feel like the painted on mixture had quite enough depth, so once dry, I brushed the same mixture of dry luster dusts over the items, and they turned out great.
