My sister is getting married in three weeks and I need to decorate her cake with tiffany blue fondant with pewter (Dark silver) damask stenciling. Does any one happen to know how i can achieve this color? TIA

you may need to paint the stencil (after stenciling onto the cake) with silver highlighter dust

Is that the same as silver luster dust?

I did what I am telling you with gold and it worked for me. I wanted to have a rustic old looking gold, so first I painted the fondant piece in black (not too cocentrate, but even all over at the same time) and then after it dried I painted over the black with gold.
It really looked old and rustic and dark.

I would just buy a few of those little silver luster dust tubes from Wilton and mix them right into your RI. They're only a few bucks and two or three tubes should do it. Keep some on hand to dust over if you need to, but that may save some work for you.

global sugar art has pewter and moonstone luster dusts. Make the icing underneath as close to pewter as you can get it and then dust with the luster dust.

Probably only silver from the craft stores--which might work if the icing underneath was dark enough.
