Does anyone know how this super shiny lustre effect has been done on this cake, please?

Hi Relznik,  it looks to me as if it has been sprayed with edible lustre spray, I have only used the blue lustre spray and that made the cake look very shiny, but I am not sure whether they would have used clear lustre just to make the fondant colour shiny.  sorry I can be anymore help.icon_confused.gif

I think it is luster dust on fondant. Either it is sprayed or dusted on. :)

Thanks. icon_smile.gif

 

I've used lustre spray before (the PME pearl lustre) and it's fabulous - but doesn't give the same sheen as this cake has.

 

I just wondered if perhaps a different technique had been used?

From different photos I've seen, I'm 99% positive it was sprayed on with some sort of lustre dust.

It looks like luster dust. Brushed on maybe? I know there are different golds, so it's hard to pinpoint what they used. Perhaps other members might know.

I achieved that finish on a cake before with layers and layers and layers and layers of edible luster spray.  It was a ridiculous amount of spray but the effect was definitely WOW.  :)

Sherri, have to ask - which brand did you use, since you stated "edible"?  I trust you with that statement.  Can't say that of everyone.  icon_biggrin.gif

Do you mean it's a marbled look?  Or shadowing?  Marbled is achieved by taking 2 or 3 different colored (or shades of one color) batches of fondant and working them into one by kneading.  As you knead the colors together, you'll start to achieve the marbled/variegated design.  Work it too much and you'll wind up with just one color.  Cut your logo from the fondant once you've reached the desired effect.  Good luck!
