Hi all,

I'm making a dark brown fondant ribbon to go around each tier of a wedding cake. I wanted to make it look iridescent and shiny....I've heard of people "dusting" it, but I don't know what this means.....luster dust? The cake itself is white. I'm afraid to put a shimmery luster dust anywhere near it. Any suggestions?

You can paint the ribbon with a mix of luster dust and vodka and that will keep it from ending up on the white, as long as you're careful when you paint.

Dust it after you cut your ribbon, but before you put it on the cake.
