I am making a Jimmy Buffet cake with fondant cut-outs of palm trees and margaritas and then 3D fondant cheeseburgers and a parrot.

Should I use luster dust on any of it? If I do some, should I do all- or jus tthe margaritas?

Also, I did a search in the forums on luster dust to see how people use it and nothing came up! There must be some old threads about it.

I would luster dust the margaritas only, to make them appear shiny.

If the colors are right on it will help add depth to the texture of your work. It depends on how much you want it to sparkle or shine. I luv it and probably use it too much LOL.

Yes, just the margaritas, it would also make them looks a little "frosty", like the frozen glasses they come in.

If you go to google and type in "luster dust and cake central" you will pull a ton of the threads.
