AHello pros! I have been tasked to make a toolbox cake. However, I notice a lot of the tools on cakes I've seen have a shiny silver color. I would like to know how it's done. If there is anyone out there who wouldnt mind assisting me (with details please), I would be grateful. Thanks!!!

I found this out by accident but if you spray silver mist spray on black (or very dark) fondant it makes the fondant look like the silver shiny colour that you are talking about.

You can also buy metallic food paint (rainbow dust brand) or add some vodka to some silver dust to make a paint.

AI used a shimmer spray over grey fondant on my board which was great but when I tried to paint the hammer with lustre dust and vodka, it went a bit streaky
