After I make the fondant pearls, I have pearl dust that I want to put on them. Do I brush the dust on dry or should I mix it with vodka and paint it on?

Thank you fellow cakers!!

I'm no expert, but what works for me is to put the pearls in a tupperware container, sprinkle a small amount of dust in, close it up and roll them around until they look the way I like. Sometimes I have to add more dust.

Did them that way for the border on this cake:

I did mine exactly the same way as korensmommy. Easy and it worked really well. icon_smile.gif
