Painting with lustre on cakes has been on trend for a while. Lustre is a powder which shimmers when mixed with alcohol and is available in a range of colours (gold, silver, champagne, white, copper). It can really take a simple cake and transform it into a glamorous cake. A cake painted with lustre can be complemented with fresh flowers or sugar flowers. Last year, I wrote a tutorial for one of my fave magazines on working with lustre and fondant stripes - Sweet Magazine! The article was featured in the magazine and my cake made the back cover! The image above was taken by the lovely team at Sweet! If you would love to learn how to re-create the cake in the pic then this blog post is for you!
