Hi CCers!

 

Think it's my first time to post, I often just read the boards for tips on how to bake and decorate better.

Received a request from a friend to do a cake similar to what's pictured below, not so sure how to make the fondant shimmer like that, don't have an airbrush system, would just plain old brushing on lustre dust with vodka do? Also, can I just use super pearl on both pink and white fondant? I only want to buy what's necessary as I don't often get request for cakes that require lustre/shimmer....
