Hi! I was wondering if anyone has used the charcoal black lustre dust? I have a bunch of cookies that need to be iced with RI primarily in black, but... well... you know. I'm trying to avoid that gross bitter taste black leaves... Also, I don't want to add chocolate to darken it up first. I was wondering though, if it would maybe work if I just darkened my royal icing a little bit, and then went over it with black lustre dust? Would that make it pretty black? I know it would be sparkly, but that's probably ok.
hmmm... sorry I can't help, but I'd love to know the answer too!
WOW. In case anyone else was wondering, mystery on black icing that isn't disgusting *solved*! I ended up just buying some, figuring worst case scenario it *doesn't* work like I needed it to and I use it for something else. NO NEED. This stuff is amazing. It made even white icing (after it was dry, of course) perfectly black. I think that I'darken it somewhat on the cookies first so I dont have to use so much dust, but this. stuff. is. awesome.
Could I ask where you are finding this? Is it really luster dust or is it petal dust? Thanks
Oh! Oops. I wasn't even paying attention. I was just so excited to have black icing. I checked. Petal dust.
So probably not the right option for people who want the sparkle (perfect for me tho! I didn't need it!) but I wonder if you could dry brush over the top with a silver or white for the shimmer?
I found this but have not used it. It might work. Anyone else??
