I airbrush mine with pearl lustre for a pearly shine.


WBH's house buttercream is made sorta like a meringue bc without the eggs - it's been awhile since I have made it - but you cook the sugar with water, I think, and then add in the shortening.  If memory serves me right, it was pretty shiny...the pictures in their book were always so shiny and I think that is why.  Some were obviously sprayed with pearl...others just looked shiny.


That may help.  Maybe google the recipe.
