My final cake decorating class ends on world wide "Doctor Who Day" so I thought a doctor who themed cake is a must!!!!!!
I'm not wanting to attempt a TARDIS yet, but I will, perhaps Christmas, or next years Doctor Who Day.

I found this picture of a Dalek Wedding cake, I know genius right? anyway....
I see that there is silver rings of fondant or icing on the sides of the cake, and I'm wondering how do you get that color?
Picture of what's possibly the worlds most amazing wedding cake.

Paint it with Silver luster dust.

It looks like royal icing was piped on the cake, than painted.

If it's fondant, sometimes I color my fondant a gray shade and then paint it with silver luster dust.

HTH!

Do a search for silver fondant glaze. Very inexpensive and wonderful to work with. You paint it on and let it dry for thirty minutes and then and more coats until you achieve your desired color. I usually start with gray fondant. They also sell pearl which I love because you can color it and gold.

Thank you! That sounds very simple!!!!!
I remember when I first attempted "Red" icing... *Shiver at the memory*
This sounds like I will not have a problem at all!

Thank you!!!!!!
