Hi! im new on this amazing world of cake decoration...! i know a few things since i just startet taking wilton classes ( course 1) and i made this website my bible so all u guys r my teachers as well!!! but my question is: how do i get golden or silver fondant??? i've been working w fondant ( its actually my favorite!) for just a few months and i bought the golden dust and used w vodka but it doesnt get really gold or silver... anything else beside airbrush?? thank you Teachers!!!!!
Not all dusts work the same. The wilton dusts you can buy at the craft store don't give a real metallic look. You can make sparkly yellow or sparkly gray with them but that's about it. The dusts that you can order online will give a better metallic look.
I use airbrush color and I apply it with a regular paintbrush because I don't have an airbrush. You have to practice a bit so you don't end up with streaks.
Yes, to get the best silver/gold sheen upon a cake I would have to say use Americolor airbrush colors and either hand paint it or use an airbrush machine because some dusts just give you a silver color and not a metallic silver/gold sheen like the airbrush colors....
