Hi. I have a half sheet cake I'll be covering in fondant. But I would like to make it look silver. I don't have the ability to airbrush. If petal/luster dust is used how much would be necessary to cover such a large cake, how large of a brush can be used, etc. I've used luster dust once before and the final look was "streaky." Any suggestions and/or tips are greatly appreciated!

I bought Duff's silver spray when I needed a silver look to a figure skate. I tried spraying it on the fondant, however it beaded - so I just sprayed it on wax paper and painted it on - looked great. You might be able to spray the cake and then use a large brush to smooth it out.

I don't know for a whole cake...but I have painted smaller parts with silver luster dust. I have found that coloring the fondant light gray helped for me.
