I am donating a cake to an event, and the theme is Snowboarding. I came across a dew snowboarding cakes that had like a glossy, metallic look to make the snow more realistic. How do I do this?! Is it s paint? Or a glaze?
here are the pictures of two different ones
p.s. they do mention in the comments that it is not airbrushed.
a few* snowboard cakes
Mix pearl dust and vodka, and paint it on. You can also use pearl sheen airbrush color, applied with a paintbrush. If you have a cake supply shop near you, they probably have the airbrush color. It's a lot more pearly-looking than the Wilton dusts, but if all you have near you is Michaels or Hobby lobby, you can get some white Wilton dust and that will work too. For the blue parts, I'd just mix a teensy bit of blue food color into the mix of dust and vodka, or into the airbrush color, rather than buying blue dust.
Luster dust applied dry probably. I think you're seeing something that isn't there, like the lighting in the particular photos. I see nothing but a lot of luster dust and a strong flash from the camera.
You rock! Thank you so much!! I'm looking forward to trying this! Thank you for the quick response as well, considering I need to start it in about an hour lol
For metallic look, the hi-liter dusts are wonderful.
