Hi everyone,

So, I have an All Buttercream Cake to do and I wanted a lil pearlization (Is that even a word, lol) to it for a nice shine. I've only heard of using this spray on fondant, but, Has anyone ever used this on Buttercream before? If so, did it create a really nice shine to your cake?

TIA for all of youer help

Yes I have. I will try to attach a picture of the one I did. It was a bridal shower cake and I thought it made it look very vintage and antique-y.

i have used it on bc and it works great. the only thing is that my bc was white and after spraying it with the pearl it looked more like champagne in color. i was so nervous that the customer was going to hate the cake as she request it to be red, white and black. it's the tulips 2 tiered cake in my photos. the customer loved it tho and i was greatly relieved!

Here is one I did that was on a black and white cake, you can see how it works. Mine doesn't really change the color of the white. It did lighten the black to more of a charcoal color.

Just make sure your bc is really smooth. The pearl spray shows every little flaw.

I agree with Poohsmomma - make sure it is very smooth!

One more thing to comment on...I pearl spray everything I can-and mostly butter cream cakes...BUT, in my opinion, pearl spray does not look good on primary colors. It looks best on pastels...except it does make a cool effect on black. I've just seen in on primary red and blue and hated it.

to share some examples of spraying on BC:

Here's one where I sprayed red on BC. It really brought out the pressed-mat design: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1256596

this is one where I laid a piece of lace on the edge of the cake and sprayed it with gold. Lifted the lace and Wah-LAH!!!: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1445677

I know I've got a photo somewhere where I've sprayed BC roses. Wow, that really makes 'em pop!!
