I'm making an ivory colored fondant cake....whats the best way and best product to get it really shimmery? All I have avaliable locally is Wilton products...but still have time to order something. Thanks!
I use Americolor Pearl sheen airbrush on all my cakes...Very nice...If you don't have an airbrush you can buy PME canned Lustre Pearl spray.It smells divine..Like Cotton Candy!!
I also use Americolor Pearl airbrush. Great effect. I used to brush with Wilton luster dust pearl before I had an airbrush. Just brush on dry with a large soft brush (like a blush brush, new of course).
Fondant source sell fondant glaze for 2.49 a jar. You just paint on with a brush let dry and add additional coats if necessary. I love the pearl glaze and the silver. The pearl can be colored any color using gel coloring. Only takes a little color to go along way.
You can try lustre dust and brush it on with a large, clean makeup brush. Williams-Sonoma just came out with a pearlized lustre spray, also. I haven't tried it yet but it looks nice on cakes from the pics I have seen.
Spray it with the pearl spray (Wilton sells one too) and then while tacky, sprinkle disco dust all over the cake. Great shimmery effect.
I use the Wilton luster dust and I pour it in a small dish then use a makeup brush(from $ Tree) and dry dust it on the fondant. The pearl dust is really pretty on white or ivory fondant.
