I need to make silver dots on a wedding cake. Does anyone know how to do it?
Not silver balls. I can't find any silver coloring.
I am assuming you will need to cut the dots from fondant and paint them silver? I just roll my fondant thin then use a circle cutter the size I am needing. I then mix a silver dust with grain alcohol or lemon oil and paint the circles. Be sure to use a safe dust. Here are a few that I use:
Not sure how big your dots need to be but if they are smaller, you can use anything from a drinking straw to a bubble straw. Another option if you would prefer to have cutters, would be this mini accent set. It has many shapes but I have found them to be very useful for accents.
Well, to make silver dots you have to have silver dust, from which you make an edible silver paint. There is silver edible paint already mixed up, but I don't find it to be very good.
I've done this in the past by piping royal icing dots on the cake, and then painting them with the silver/vodka mixture afterwards. I believe they also make edible glitter dust (limited colors) that you can use to highlight even more.
Thank you everyone for your helpful advice.
