Hi, can anyone tell me how to make silver icing? I only have silver pearl dust at my disposal. Will it colour buttercream or is there another product out there?

I have made gold icing before by mixing a little of my gold luster dust to a very small amount of vodka, then mixing that with some buttercream and it worked.

Maybe you can try the same with the silver. Just do a test first before making a large batch.

OR you could try some tiny dabs of black to white buttercream to get a slight grayish/silver color and then add some of your silver dust, see how that turns out.
