. . . if you don't have an air brush . . . there are luster sprays available . . . . . . emmascakes used this product when she made this cake . . . . . .when I PMed her regarding this cake she said she used the "pearl" not "silver" (apparently there had been a name change) . . . hope this is what you're looking for . . .

I just used some pearl dust to give some of my fondant figures some glimmer. I have used cantaloupe for a goldy shimmer and then the silver pearl dust is awesome! I used it dry; I took a small paint brush and just brushed it onto my figures. Here's a tip that I learned the hard way: use the lid and your filter- after you dab the brush into the powder dab it into the lid so the excess falls off and when you go to put it on your cake you wont get a big blob. I ended up with a few silver solid circles until I figured it out. I do love the way it looks on the cake tho... very cool!
