I am working on a cake right now that is going to be iced in fuschia buttercream with purple and silver fondant accents. I'm thinking it would look so much cooler with silver buttercream but I know that's next to impossible. I did see this stuff called 'grafitti spray' by Duff the last time I was at michaels. Has anyone tried this stuff yet? I'm sure it would give the silver effect, but I'm more concerned with how it will affect the taste of my buttercream. Do you think it's flavorless?
Sorry, no help but would also be interested in the answer. Michael's is much closer than the supply store.
I've used the Duff silver spray... practice with it before aiming it at a cake. LOL... It doesn't make it REALLY silver unless you pass over and over and over... if you spray too close you'll get pooling... you need to be patient and let it dry in between sprays and be careful of overspray. I felt it was definitely worth the money and the tip didn't clog. I used it mostly on fondant and some on chocolate too... it gives it a silvery sheen, not a real opaque finish, but for accenting things it was awesome... I silvered up fondant and chocolate for guitar parts and it really helped the white fondant pop with the silvery sheen. There's no taste, that I could discern or that anyone's said.
Thanks! I may just pick up two cans then. I need it to cover the bottom tier which will be an 8" square...but I want it to look silver rather than just an irridescent sparkle.
Well there was a long thread on this and some liked it some hated it. I didn't like it at all. My can DID clog went to get another one.. it clogged..complete mess. I ended up airspraying.
I tried it once and hated it!. First of all, like others said is just a barely noticeable sheen, second, it clogged immediately and it drips! a total mess! Your are much better tinting the fondant a VERY light gray and then brush it with luster dust or something like that.
