I will be making a wedding cake for a bride who wants the fondant on her cake to have a shiny, pearly look like her dress. I have attached a picture of her dress below. Can I achieve that with just dry lustre dust or use a lustre spray? I don't have an airbrush machine. Which color dust/spray should I use? I am a little nervous because I'm not sure how to achieve this look. Thanks for the help!

Pearl lustre dust will probably work best and if you have a steamer, you can steam the cake and it will get very shiny. Good Luck!

Don't see a pic, but painting with the dust mixed with a little vodka should work.

You dont need to mix lustre dust with anything you can just use a large soft brush and put it on dry
