Dusts and Sequins
Posted on January 10 2018
We just love metallics and thats why we have a MASSIVE range to choose from, some great brands.
Our favourite brands have to be Faye Cahill Dusts and Rolkem. Both have such great coverage and metallic sheens.
Faye Cahill is a famous caker who creates stunning wedding cakes, so when her Faye Cahill dusts became available we jumped on that straight away and for a 100% edible dust the colours are the best we have come across.
But there is no Gold or silver like the Rolkem Craft dusts, we use them all the time on non edible decorations or fake cakes/tiers with the odd person ok with consuming it. The manufacturer says they are edible but this has been debated, so we advertise them as craft dusts and you and your customers have to make your own minds up.
The sequins cake technique was created by our good friend Lori Hutchinson (The Caketress) who is also a world famous Cake Artist. The technique has blown up over the last few years and can be seen on many wedding cakes.
For years the only available sequins was multicolour which is not ideal for covering with colour but still achievable, but now we have a range of colours from Gold, pink, white, blue and even heart shapes to create a special little touch.
We created a short video on how to achieve this technique, mix it up with half covered tiers or different colours.
