Lustre dust on Ganache

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

New here, just starting out and expanding my horizons beyond a box of instant mix haha.

 

I'm intending to make a dark chocolate ganache as a topping for some cupcakes and I'm wondering if it's possible to mix lustre dust directly with the ganache.

 

Barring that, would it be recommended to dry dust on wet chocolate if I want a subtle shimmer instead of something super golden? I'm only worried I'll wind up with clumpy golden bits instead of an even shimmer.

 

Thanks!

I recently watched someone paint luster dust thinned down to a wash consistency with lemon extract onto modeling chocolate. I'm not sure if it would have the same effect on ganache, but it worked well on the modeling chocolate.

I have never tried it with a brush it could very well end up clumping. I would use an airbrush or if you don't have that look for a bottle of edible luster spray at the craft store.

I recently used americolor gold shimmer and painted on ganache with a stencil. I worked pretty well. It wasn't as "gold" as I would have liked. I tried to post the pic here but it's not working.

I have never tried it either but I would think if you let the ganache firm up you should be able to at least give it a light dusting. Depending on how heavy a coat you want.
