I know I have seen a thread before regarding pearl and lustre dusts, but can't find it. Is the Wilton pearl dust edible, is it okay to use on a fondant covered cake? I want to make a pillow cake and want it to be shiny, is the pearl dust the right thing to use? TIA

Yes, edible. When I want something super lustery and shiny like a satin pillow, I airbrush it with a liquid pearl sheen spray. Pearl luster dust is great too. I use a big fat (new) blush brush from the makeup department and dob it on.

Thank you Lurvely, Should I paint it on the pillow wet or with a dry brush?

I dry dust, but I find if the fondant has a very thin sheen of shortening, not enough to be gummy or cakey, it takes a bit better. And a BIG poofy blush brush is best. Dump some of the dust into a small bowl to work with it better.

Wilton's dust is FDA approved.
