I will be making a wedding cake for my daughter soon. The problem is the silver. Two of the cakes are supposed to be silver. Does anyone have experience to share? I've ordered a can of silver spray to try.
Any advice would be truly appreciated. Hopefully it wont be " don't do it "...
Well . . . I haven't had any success using silver spray, it turns greenish. I like to color the butter cream or fondant the shade of gray that you like and spray heavily with pearl sheen. Try it ahead of time to see how much pearl sheen and how much grey coloring (drop of black gel). HTH
I'd also love to know the best way to do silver. The gold luster dust (from Wilton) works ok but the silver looks really bad when I try to do the same technique I only tried it once dry and once wet (with a touch of vodka) - both times it looked bad. I wish I knew the trick
I did a gold pyramid for an occasion and I colored the fondant the golish/brown color for a base and then painted gold luster dust with lemon extract on it. It was nice and gold. Silver might to the same. you could practie on a small piece first?
