Hi all. Â I am doing cupcake toppers for a friend. Â She has a logo for her daughter that will be hot pink and silver and she wants the toppers to be edible images of this logo. Â I have no idea if silver is possible on an edible image printer. Â Is it? Â If not, can I paint silver luster dust onto the image? Â any help would be great!
Hello, I had this in my word document but I have never personally tried doing this. I do know of people who have tried it and it worked great. Not sure if this will help but here it is below.
How to pipe in gold color
I found this a while ago, don't remember where but I saved it and never tried it.
"saw a few posts asking how to make gold and silver for piping.....found this recipe and thought I would share it:
2 ts. Powdered sugar
2 ts. gold silver or metallic dusting powder
1 ts. piping gel
On a small ceramic plate, mix sugar and dusting powder. Add a few drops of clear alcohol (gin or vodka is suggested) and mix with a small palette knife to create a stiff paste
Add the piping gel, a little at a time, mixing well until the consistency for piping in reached. Use a very small piping bag and tip as needed. The leftovers can be put into a small container and stored in the refrigerator. It will keep indefinitely YOU NEED 4 GRAMS FOR THIS ! PLUS YOU CAN ADD MORE POWDER SUGAR , YOU WILL LOVE IT !
Print the image. Â It will be a grayish silvery color. Â You can apply luster dust but DO NOT paint it until it is on whatever you are using. Â If you try to paint on the image, it will dissolve. Â If you are putting it on a piece of gumpaste or fondant, first apply then paint. Â
thanks so much for the reply. Â i will try that!
