O.K. I know that there are some examples of Star Wars cakes in the gallery. These are a little too literal. A bride wants a Star Wars wedding cake. Covered in black fondant,with "random white dots" all over to look like the universe/stars. What is better for the dots on fondant,buttercream or royal icing? Also,even though the dots are supposed to be random, is there a stencil or some other method that would make placing the dots easier?
I'd use the old kindergarten trick of flicking a toothbrush dipped in white food colouring for something like that.
That, or I'd use the back of a paintbrush dipped in white and just dot the cake tiers randomly all over. Maybe even make them more concentrated on the top tier and less so as you go down the cake tiers, you know?
I used silver dust diluted in vodka and flicked on the fondant w/ a paintbrush for the stars on my son's Star Wars cake
