Hi CC'ers, I have a question in regards to steaming a cake to make it shiny and to set in the Luster dust I will be using. Ok, so I have an order coming up, it is a 2 tiered cake platinum (silver) and a medium blue. I wanted to steam the cake to set in the luster dust I plan to use on the platinum tier and I wanted to steam the blue tier as well. On the blue tier I plan to use a stencil and put a damask design with royal icing around it. Will the steam prevent the royal icing from adhering? Thanxs in advance
I wouldn't think it would prevent the RI adhering (unless you steam it until it's really quite wet) There *might* be an issue of colour bleeding from the blue tier into the royal icing if it's piped on while the fondant is damp.
Why don't you use Silver and blue luster spray. I just ordered pearl and red for two cakes that I have coming up. I can't wait to try it.
