A bride sent me this picture and says this is what she wants, except with plum colored ribbon, her colors are silver and plum.

 

This cake looks more gold than silver to me...Is it ivory fondant with a silver sheen airbrushed/brushed on top?

 

Or should I use white fondant with a silver sheen on top?

Hi Paperfishies! It'd definitely looks like white fondant with silver lustre spray to me. I'm not seeing any gold tones at all...maybe different computer screens have different colour resolutions? I'm voting white fondant and silver sheen.

To me it kind of looks like white with a pearly finish and then matte white stencil on top.

Could be white fondant with gold pearl dust.

 

I am curious about how to are going to do the effect on the sides of the cakes?

It's a stencil you use with buttercream or royal icing.  I will be stenciling it on with white royal icing.
