How can I give a silk fabric effect on fondant? Thanks in advance.
Use petal dust to brush over it? Or are you wanting to make a fabriclooking drape? Explain better what you are trying to do please.
I came across this cake (pic attached). Would like to make something like this. Any tips would be appreciated :)
That looks as if its been brushed with petal dust. Its very pretty. I'd make the swag, then go over it with a brush. I love petal dust!
Make sure the dust you use has a luster to it. The Hobby Lobby brand of Pearl dust does. Steam it carefully after you apply the dust.
@cutiger What effect will the steam have on it? Does that give it a smoother finish?
Thank you everyone for the suggestions. I am curious to know about steaming too ...what does it do exactly?
Steaming sets the color and brings out a bit of shine - which in this case is exactly what yoiu want ;)
Thanks for answering...had to go out of town and didn't see her question! Thanks again because I hate leaving people with a question not answered!
@kakeladi Oh wow...that's awesome!!
Thank you so much everyone :) It would be my first attempt at steaming ...phew! ;-)
