What is the easiest way to make silver buttercream scroll work?? I am going to make my sisters wedding cake and she wants a lot of silver scroll work. The only way I know to do this is to pipe on the buttercream in scroll work then paint it with silver dust? How do others do this?

I haven't tried it yet with the edible silver dust but you can make a once and done product with piping gel.


2 tsp confectioner's sugar

2 tsp dust

clear alcohol

1 teaspoon piping gel


mix 1st 2 ingredients

add a little alcohol to make a stiff paste

add piping gel slowly


This is from International School of Sugarcraft Book Three


Worth a try but again I've only used this with the non-toxic dusts.
