Hi there! 

I'm making my sister's wedding cake and she wants this exact stenciling done on the sides. What kind of luster dust do you recommend I use for the shimmer effect on the stenciling? And how do I apply it? Do I just brush luster dust all over the fondant and stenciling, or paint the stenciling by hand? Thanks!

AWhat I would do is stencil with royal icing...then mix luster dust and some kind of alcohol or leman extract so that it's a thick paste and paint over it. Not sure that just dry brushing it with luster would give you the exact look

Thanks for the advice Morganchampagne!


I was afraid I would have to paint it by hand. Good thing she wants a cake dummy at the reception. That's gonna take me a while.  :-)

AI think it will probably go faster than you think :). It's honestly not hard you just have to be a little careful about dripping. Once you get the consistency right it's all easy
