Hello everyone,

I'd appreciate if someone would help me. I have to make a US Navy Admiral's flag that has a silver star. I'm planning to make it all in fondant but don't know how I can get the star in silver.... What kind of technique should I use?? Please help!!

To get silver, I make a light gray fondant and make the shape I need. When it dries, I use a silver food-grade glaze or take some silver pearl dust mixed with a little clear alcohol (like vodka) or vanilla extract and paint it on.

Did you just dust this on or did you use a clear liquid with dust?
