Hello Everyone!

I was hoping someone could help me!

First off let me start by saying i am a cake newbie and bow down to all of your fantastic work!

I am looking for a shimmer dust (not sure if i am calling it the appropriate term) , but not sure where to start looking to purchase. I found some Wilton ones at Michaels but went on more like gitter. I am looking for the product that goes on more like a metallic shine? Does this make sense?

Please Please Help!

Do you know if there are any retailers that sell it? If not, do you recommend any online dealers or brand?

Okay, let me give it a try. The location I like is great, good prices, easy customer services. It is country kitchen sweet art. Please just type that in your google search bar and you will get there! (When you call with questions a live person actually answers!) Also when you place the order, order the catalogue, it is free and it has so many items and many times it has explanations and instructions for using the products! hope that helps!

Unless you have a cake store near you the closest you will get locally is the Wilton Pearl Dusts.,%20Pearl,%20Luster%20Dusts/Luster%20Dusts

Luster or Pearl dusts can be found at Michaels. They also carry edible glitter so make sure that's not what you are getting. If you want it to look like a metal finish you will have to mix it with clear flavoring or vodka to make a thin "paint" and then paint a few coats on. It looks amazing once you get it a uniform color!
