How do you make metallic buttercream?? I've seen cakes that look like they have a meticallic buttercream piped on. Is this airbrushing or some other trick?
Is there an easy way to give your cake an overall metallic finish?
Thanks in advance for all your help!!
Do you have an airbrush? americolor has these colors in airbrush colors. I guess if you don,t have an airbrush you could put the color in a spray bottle. Lucks brand might also have these colors. Maybe pme. I,ll keep looking around. I have them in americolor airbrush. here is one site. many others. you don,t mix your colors in with the buttercream. you spray or paint them on.
There is a line of cake decorating stuff by Ace of Cakes baker Duff called Cake Graffiti. Michaels sells it.
Is there a gold spray in that line? I needed some for a last minute crown cake last week and couldn't find any in my whole city!
It comes in these colors: Red, Metallic Silver, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink and Orange
Thanks, I so have an airbrush system. I haven't quite mastered the pressures and angles just yet, but I'm trying. Maybe I need a better pen? It just looks like they are piping it on that way, so they are doing an incredible job at painting and spraying!!
So no gold. Bummer. Does anyone have an idea of how to do gold buttercream? Maybe golden yellow coloring and tons of shimmer dust mixed in? Sounds spendy!
