I want to make an ivory tinted, pearl lustered buttercream. I use Indydebi's slash Sugarshack's recipe (dairy creamer and dream whip).
1. How can i tint it ivory?
2. How do i incorporate the luster to give the whole cake a luster sheen?

Use Ivory food color... wilton makes one. I would say that you will have to dust the whole cake if you don't have an airbrush.... now real sure

You need an air brush to dust a nice even coat onto BC but if you don't mind it a little speakles there is a way. You can take a floppy blush brush and load it up with luster. Hold one hand frim and ridged close to the cake and tap the brush towards the cake and against your hand making the powder fly off and onto the cake.

You can purchase Lustre Spray Pearl by PME. It works beautifully. It comes in a can and you just spray it on and it gives it a wonderul pearl appearance. Never a spit or sputter. Global Sugar Art sells it as well as most local cake stores. I absolutely love it....
