If you are doing it in fondant, I would do it in light gray fondant and buy the platinum dust brilliant silver from country kitchen. Mix it with vodka or colorless extract (lemon or orange is what I use) and paint it on. Use thin layers and several of them, letting them dry in between. I used an airbrush on my microphone cake, but I did it with light gray fondant and platinum dust, just like I told you, and I think it looks like a good silver color.

The platinum dust is FDA approved for food, that's why I'm pushing that one.

The cake in the link started out as white fondant.

sounds great but i am curious.. i had a bottle of airbrush coloring given to me a while back the person thought i could use it to "paint" the cake (they knew i didn't have an airbrush system) so i'm wondering is it possible to use this colorant as a paintable coloring? just curious.
i've gone crazy~ but it keeps me from going insane! heheheh
