I am making my husbands grandfather's 90th birthday cake. It will be 3 tiered with silver starts shooting from the cake. The problem is when I try to make the "silver" stars with the fondant, I have... either white with silver dust, that is not very silver-y. I tried adding a touch of black to give it a slight gray appearance, but as it dried it looked blue. I tried another batch with more black, but that look more like the over the hill cake I just did. any suggestion on How I can get silver stars?? The cake is for this sunday.
From the editor:
Start with a pale gray fondant. Mix bright silver petal dust with a little vodka and paint over the gray fondant. This will give you a beautiful silver finish on you stars.
