Hello Everyone..

I will be making a bell cake..and I need to paint it in silver..I know its with silver dust and vodka..But the last time I did this, the color didnt turn out so great, it looked "patchy", I painted it over and over it many times, and it just looked worse..I had to throw the fondant out...Does anyone have a any suggestions on how to paint on fondant and making it look smooth and not "patchy"

thank you!

how about coloring your fondant gray and then painting it with silver glaze?

Color your icing/fondant gray and paint it with "Silver Glaze." This is a food grade color glaze. I think I purchased mine from Global Sugar Art.

Another option is Chef Master's edible silver spray paint. I used it recently and it works fantastic...dries very quickly with nice even coverage. I covered a 9 x 9 with it and still had half a can left over. If you google it you will find a number of places that carry it!

I make my silver stuff out of gray fondant or gumpaste, then use silver shimmer dust with vodka over it and I never have any problems. I use a wide brush to apply it in even strokes.
