Maybe a post about them will help me to get a little closure before I move onto the next theme?!
But what can I say about them? Think, think...
Ok, here are two random bytes:
Firstly, luster dust:
A couple of weeks back, I wrote about dry brushing a stencil design onto fondant.
You can use the same technique with luster dust to get a more "bling" effect.
And you can read a post here, on how to make a gold paint with luster dust.
(top left cupcake is the dry brush technique with a stencil;
top right and bottom left are luster paint)
Second, random share:
Leave your teal/ turquoise icing - buttercream, fondant and (especially) tylose/ CMC paste - overnight for the colour to mature. It goes from teal to teal-on-steroids. Very Bollywood.
