Hi fellow bakers! I wanting to make a teenage mutant ninja turtle cake and have them coming out of a sewer....my question is How can I color my fondant silver? Do I just have to paint the whole thing with silver luster dust mixed with vodka/lemon extract??


I hope this picture works....

Luster dust mixed with vodka will work. Silver airbrush color would work too...you can put it on with a paintbrush but sometimes it's streaky.

Actually if you color it grey you may be able to dry dust it.
Try a piece one side dry dusted and the other wet painted to see which one you like best.

The only problem with dry dusting is you use more product - if that's not a problem for you go for it, but I'm always trying to keep my costs down! lol Definitely color it gray, then paint - either dry or wet icon_wink.gif

Sorry to crash in on this question but I also need silver fondant for a wedding cake. Would I be able to mix fondant with Silver dust?

Really how do you use more to dry dust? I always put down a bendable plastic cutting board and curl it up and tap the dust back into my container when done. The wet stuff you wash down the drain unless you have another project you can use it on very soon. I have added dust into vodka and it took way more dust to make it paint-able then it took to dry dust the area.
