[size=18]I have searched high and low and I must be blind ! I know there must be help on here somewhere ! (maybe even a video!)for a zipper for
a purse cake. Also, has anyone used Chefmaster Edible Metallic Spray - Silver ? I found it on globalsugar art and was wondering it that would be the easiest way to go instead of brushing silver dust on? Also, do you have a favorite silver to use ?
Thanks for all your help ! You guys Rock !

I just went to my local fabric store and bought a real zipper, lay it flat on a strip of fondant and rolled over it with a roliing pin to get the "zipper teeth" impression on my fondant. I then painted it gold with lustre dust + vodka.

That's a great idea!

I just used the wavy attachment to that little white Wilton cutter/embosser tool and then painted gold.

I would not use the spray...unless you plan to spray it before you put it on the cake. That aerosol stuff goes everywhere.

yes I heard of the imprint idea before ! Glad to hear it really works! SO, then you just made the pull part yourself , right ?

I also pressed a real zipper into a piece of fondant to get the teeth marks...I modeled the pull by hand.

Thanks...

Yes, that's Nu-Silver Luster Dust.

You can see the zipper here before it was dusted: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1557011⊂=1557015

thanks for all the info, I will have to say i wasnt ready to spend any more money on supplies so i improvised. I rolled out a strip of fondant and then took a plastic spoon and pused the end of the handle side into the fondat, i staggered the pattern, maid a pull and covered it all in silver glaze, which by the bay i do not like using. I need to get some of that luster dust !
