I have to make a wedding cake, it is going to be buttercream,how can I pearlize it without an airbrush? I heard the pray on luster dust leaves an awful after taste. please help!
If you use a crusting buttercream, you can buy lustre powder and brush it on with a brand new blusher brush - make sure it doesn't shed though.
But to be honest, the stuff in the can smells so delicious, I'm pretty sure it doesn't leave an aftertaste. I've only tried the PME brand spray. If you go down the spray route, buy a couple of cans because they are small, and spray your cake in a large cardboard box, closing all the flaps when done, if you don't want to be cleaning walls, counters, and floors forever!
