I use the dragees all the time. It's better than making balls of fondant and painting them silver. Usually when you cut a cake a person might get one or two dragges per cut, unless your design is full of the little balls. So I wouldnt worry too much about it.
This really depends on the design you are trying to achieve in your cake.
Plus usually silver dust is non edible.

might i suggest painting it on with silver powdered food color (dilute with alcohol; i use vodka) If you don want to paint it on directly maybe you can make some fondant/gum paste cut outs and paint those and apply them to the cake kind of like applique.

Try putting a small amount of silver luster in a small sandwich bag, add your rolled fondant beads (dried) and easily shake the bag...coats all the beads evenly.

I use them all the time. The wilton pearl dust will give you a grey pearly shine but wont look like a silver dragee.
