BTW..maybe you can help.. I'm doing a wedding cake. 3 tier stacked. BC RF- the lightest plum base fondant you ever saw, plum, fern green, and a bright bold orange sunflower in the front with plum sash around the base of all 3 tiers...can't wait to showicon_smile.gif...

I'm using luster (not petal) dust on circle patterns of 2 shades of plum and green shades on stripes for other tier with fondant cut outs that are going on each tier that has the base fondant over BC. Wondering what's easier.. Should I luster the cut outs first, lay them on right away OR Luster them after they are on the cake? I don't have a duster vacuum new gadget yet. I never dry my fondant before I put it on fondant b/c it sticks better if it's not heavy.

TIP: I put luster dust on the actual silk flower with spanish moss dust and it's helping bring the colors together...I never thought to do that before. luster dust works well on fake those trial and error light bulb moments! lol
Thanks for your help. Kari

I would put the luster on prior to adding them to the cake. It can so easily get on the rest of the fondant and then you cant get it off. Us care with your fingers as well.
