Hi-
I need to re-create the Diet Coke label for a can cake I am doing. Does anyone know of a template, or the best way to do this? I am terrible at free handing and would love a template or any suggestions.
THank You

I have had much success with printing things off the internet, and then exacto-knifing them out of fondant.

The people who've made a Diet Coke can cake and painted it metallic: Can you offer any advice on how many parts silver luster dust with alcohol? I have been having problems mixing the two and being able to get it to paint correctly. When I paint using my mixture, the brush paints clear with specks of silver. I've seen on Amazing Cakes when they paint fondant in gold their mixture, it's really like liquid gold and it paints on like it's an actual gold paint. Am I using the wrong kind of "paint" or are my proportions not right? Thanks in advance!

you can search for edible silver or gold paint. I have ordered it in the past, it is a small size, same size as wilton color gels

I agree with kimmisue2009....The internet is the best place to find images. Then just enlarge it to the size you need. My niece came over about a month ago and wanted my help making a budweiser can for her boyfriend's b-day. She actually printed a label from the computer (she may have photoshopped it) in a very "painterly" looking way. It wasn't the very detailed, crisp image. It was very soft and brushstroked looking. She wanted it that way so that she would not have to paint every little detail but it still looked like a bud label. We just cut the larger pieces out of fondant with an exacto knife using the paper image as a template. For the smaller things (lettering,etc..) we lightly traced them on to the cake and then painted by hand. Hope this helps!

Get airbrush silver color to paint on..it works great! AND easy!! I don't do luster dusts much anymore unless just to add shine to it, AFTER it's painted gold/silver already!

If you don't have an airbrush, they sell silver color in a spray can. I've used it before to paint fondant. Only needed 2-3 layers to achieve the color I was looking for.

You can buy airbrush color (come in little tubs, like americolor ones, but don't have to airbrush it..you just paint it on fondant! No diluting or anything..just use right from the container.
