Can you please tell me what products you use to give that shiny gold / silver look? Is it just silver / gold dust or are you using a lacquer with them? Thank you so much for the information.

For silver fondant, I start with a gray fondant. Then I use silver luster dust mixed with a little bit of everclear and paint it on. It gives it the shiny bright finish. For the gold, I start with a yellow fondant and then do the same thing. Gold luster dust mixed with everclear, paint it on.
