Hi all,
I will be making a cake covered in gray fondant with an all over sparkle/shimmer effect. I've considered either brushing with dry pearl dust or the edible pearl spay. Any suggestions about which would be better? How much of either would I need to completely cover a 6", 9", and 12" round?
Thanks in advance!

I've used the PME & ChefMaster pealized sprays--silver, gold, white, etc. I like them. Very convenient.

Depending on the coverage you want, I'd say one can would do fine, but I'd get a second one.............just in case.

Thank you for your reply BlakesCakes! Looks like that would be the less expensive option. icon_smile.gif Do you find the spray cans difficult to control at all? I don't want it to be to heavy and I'm a little concerned about getting even coverage since I don't have any experience with that. Thanks again!

Just like using a spray paint can. I hold it about 12" away and do several light coats.

If you do go with spray, try to spray inside a cardboard box put on it's side, since that stuff gets everywhere!

I agree, the spray is great but spray inside something... the spray is very fine and gets all over the place..

Go with the PME pearl spray. I used it on the Quince cake in my photos and one can covered all nine cakes and the flowers.
