Does anyone know how this super shiny lustre effect has been done on this cake, please?
Thank you x
Hi Relznik, it looks to me as if it has been sprayed with edible lustre spray, I have only used the blue lustre spray and that made the cake look very shiny, but I am not sure whether they would have used clear lustre just to make the fondant colour shiny. sorry I can be anymore help.
I think it is luster dust on fondant. Either it is sprayed or dusted on. :)
I've used lustre spray before (the PME pearl lustre) and it's fabulous - but doesn't give the same sheen as this cake has.
I just wondered if perhaps a different technique had been used?
From different photos I've seen, I'm 99% positive it was sprayed on with some sort of lustre dust.
It looks like luster dust. Brushed on maybe? I know there are different golds, so it's hard to pinpoint what they used. Perhaps other members might know.
I achieved that finish on a cake before with layers and layers and layers and layers of edible luster spray. It was a ridiculous amount of spray but the effect was definitely WOW. :)
Sherri, have to ask - which brand did you use, since you stated "edible"? I trust you with that statement. Can't say that of everyone.
AHi, I need to deliver a cake on Saturday and I am making the logo with fondant. Just that in the white part there are shadings of dark and light gray...how do I make that? Urgent help please...really desperate...
Do you mean it's a marbled look? Or shadowing? Marbled is achieved by taking 2 or 3 different colored (or shades of one color) batches of fondant and working them into one by kneading. As you knead the colors together, you'll start to achieve the marbled/variegated design. Work it too much and you'll wind up with just one color. Cut your logo from the fondant once you've reached the desired effect. Good luck!
Thank you. I know I am replying waayyy tooo late but it was more of a shadow effect. I just got a printout:D
