How to make this cake look "dirty"?

How do you get this cake to look dirty/dusty? Brush on cocoa powder maybe? ....

I've done a cake with a similar dirty look to it! I personally used Cocoa colored petal dust and just dusted it on VERY lightly, it came out perfectly!

Thanks! Do you think this could be done on a buttercream cake also?

Cakechic87, I made this cake for my daughter's baby shower and I used dried cocoa powder and lightly brushed it on. It works like a charm! Dip your dry brush in the cocoa and tap off the excess so you don't overdo it. Not sure about this techique on buttercream but if it a crusting buttercream I would imagine it would work. Good luck!
