Silver Spray

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

 What is the best brand of silver spray for cakes?  I have used wilton and I am not too impressed... It just looks gray to me.  I have a wedding cake coming up and the bride wants the decorations on the cake to be silver.  Here is a link to the cake she likes http://www.pinterest.com/pin/126100858289705113/

Thanks!

Sarah

Many companies make a silver luster dust called NU SILVER.  (CK, Global Sugar Art) Mix with alcohol and paint.  My local party supply store also sells it in the cake decorating section.

I think so.    Maybe others will  have an alternate option.

pme is edible but i've never used it

i was just going to say that the picture reminds me of the silver foil that i tried to use on a cake--it looked like aluminum foil! i'm sure it's just the lighting on that cake picture but silver foil is dang expensive and i was shocked at how it looked--so i just used all gold instead which of course was twice the price of the silver but it did not look like leftover tree tinsel (not that your cake picture does) --not to mention i really got off on their reaction when peeps asked me what was on the cake and i said '23k gold'

 

so anyhow--i'd recommend you make sure it's edible for that area of the cake

 

could i interest you in a partial pack of silver foil--hahaha jkjkjkjkjjkjkjkj

 

don't hurt me mods ;) i was just kidding

When I used the Wilton silver spray a few weeks ago, I had to do several coats and it came out silver.

I have used it before and had decent results I guess but it took several cans and the color of it was more like machinery than pretty silver... I am looking for something that is a lighter silver and a little more metallic finish.  I am gonna try the pme spray.  I saw some stuff that was called silver highlighter powder but it said that it can be toxic so that is a little strange to me to put something toxic on a cake.  I know that you are supposed to remove the decorations so I don't know if I will try that or not.  It looked really pretty.

This is not a spray, but it is edible. I have the gold and like it pretty well.

Are you tinting your fondant before spraying with the wilton stuff? I make gray fondant and spray it silver. I did some cookies that way. They are not super shiny though.

Does anyone know what food grade platinum is I keep seeing it and am wondering if it is real platinum http://www.amazon.com/Food-Grade-Platinum-Edible-Glitter-Silver/dp/B0013374S4/ref=pd_sbs_misc_5

post #13 of 13

if it's a teeny tiny amount and it costs a fortune it's real platinum--

 

i got 25 sheets of silver that were 3x3" for about $30 and the same amount of gold for about $50 so platinum would be a lot more than that. and the sheets are so fragile you can blow them away with your breath if your'e not careful. :-D
