Hi everyone!
I need some advise from people more experience than I. Is it best to put luster dust on tiny flowers after they are dry or as soon as I make them?
Also, making an Orca whale for grandson's b-cake. How do I join the black and white fondant to make a smooth seam? I don't want to put the black on top of white and leave it like that because it will look like the work of an amatur (even tho' I am one!)
Thanks for your help

You could just take a ball tool and lightly run it over the seam until it goes together. You might need to use an exacto knife to trim any area's that might bunch out.

And it doesn't matter when you put the luster dust on. Now or later - it's up to you.

I loke to put luster dust on right away, it seems to stick better.

Thank you so much for the advice. Will try it this weekend. Advice on Luster Dust makes sense, if it's damp, it'll stick better. You people are awesome!!
