That cake is from SugarShack's (Sharon Zambito's) blog:


which has directions and a tiara pattern but nothing on that pattern.

Looks like speckled enamelware, so it's probably a splatter.

paintbrush splatters, of course.

okay, that's kinda what I thought. Another question, I want to do a similar tiara....and I don't have silver/platinum glaze, however I have pearl glaze...what would you suggest? Maybe a grayish gumpaste glazed?

TIA you guy, any advice is helpful!

thank you Jan for that link, any ideas on how I would do the tiara without the silver?

If I recall correctly, Sharon used airbrush colors mixed with alcohol and flicked the color on with a paintbrush. You'd have to ask Sharon what her exact 'flicking' technique is. icon_smile.gif
