Do you have a picture of the cake?

If the entire cake had a shimmer to it, then it was probably airbrushed with pearl luster dust. I use luster dust in my airbrush often and just love the sheen. HTH.

You can also mix pearl dust with alcohol (everclear, gin, vodka) and use that mixture in the airbrush.
