Hi all,

I just saw some cookies in the photo gallery that used "pearl" icing for decorating.

Does anyone know how I can get the pearlescent effect? It looks soooo good!

Thanks lovelies!

I used luster dust to get the pearl look. Actually I think it is called Pearl dust. For the wedding cookies I just brushed it on without using the liquid. Othertimes I have used luster dust mixed with vodka.

I have used Pearl Dust on the dried B/C icing. Just use it dry with a very soft painting brush and use it very gently as to don't mess the decoration. I've also brushed it over a fondant covered cake like in the last cake I posted here. For script just mix it either with lemon extract or vodka. You can also spread it with a brush inside the icing bag close to the tip so that when the icing is being pushed through the tip, it carries traces of the dust with it. HTH

PME also sells a pearl spray.  I have used it on buttercream cakes
