When I went to the Great American Cake Show in MD, I saw Julie Bashore (I believe that is who it as) do a demo with fondant. She rolled it out, used a stencil on top, rubbed crisco on it, sprinkled or brushed luster dust on it, lifted the stencil and there was a beautiful design. Here was the amazing part.....she could then pick it up and cover an entire cake without smearing the design.

I gave this a try tonight and apparently I am missing a step of some sort, because it smeared. icon_cry.gif Was I supposed to rub of excess crisco or put something on TOP after applying the lusted dust? I don't know.

SOOOOO....if you this demo or know how to accomplish this, could you please let me know.

TIA

Sounds interesting! Maybe just do it on the finished cake so you don't have to smooth over the design.

Is it possible that she covered the design with parchment paper or waxed paper before smoothing. You might want to try this on a dummy cake before trying it on the real thing to test some different methods. Wish I could be of more help. But I never heard of this method before.
