I have two ideas...
1) colored fondant rolled into pearls and tossed in pearl dust
2) colored fondant rolled into pearls and tossed in pearl dust of matching color...ive seen blue pearl dust, green pearl dust etc etc in the cake decorating store.
The reason im asking is because the color seems to really pop...thats the effect im going for. Any suggestions are appreciated.
I would say option number 2 ;)
AThat is the way I was thinking...seeing as how those colors really pop
APut the lustre dust in a food bag and roll the balls in the bag.
you add a little cake decorating alcohol to the bag or container along with the lustre dust.
ARight....but do you use luster dust that's the same color or the regular pearl color
You can do either , If I want a particular colour lustre , I just add the white or pearl lustre to some ordinary petal dust . I usually make the balls out of white fondant with a little tylose added, although that isn't necessary .
AThank you guys for all your help!!
cute cake! Chellescakes. did you roll all of those by hand, it looks like you put a great deal of time into it.
I use a pearl maker so they are all the same size , and then roll them by hand, those ones also have a hole poked through the centre so I could make the cake jewellry with them . I use a french knitter to make the band with.
AI definitely will. Thanks so much for the compliment!
