Top Tip: Covering full cake tiers with Lustre
Matching your shade of icing to your lustre results in an even more vibrant finish to your edible creations. Try Pink Ready to Roll Icing under your Rose Gold Lustre, Autumn Gold Ready to Roll Icing with Metallic Golden Sands Lustre for a glowing, golden sheen, or Deep Purple Ready to Roll Icing with Starlight Purple Planet Lustre for a bedazzling jewel effect.
Fall for Ready to Roll Icing
Knead your Renshaw icing first to ensure it’s warm and pliable, making it easier to use. Dust your work surface with icing sugar before rolling out and rotate after each roll of the pin to prevent sticking. Use flexi-smoothers to finish your cake with a sharp edge.
Ready to Roll Icing is great for covering standard celebration cakes, cupcakes and cookies, as well as modelling small figures and decorations.
Fall for Lustre
Rainbow Dust Lustre is a versatile product that can be dusted directly onto sugarpaste, mixed with alcohol to create a food-safe paint, or combined with piping gel for a pipeable and spreadable consistency as shown on our Art Deco cake.
Pick out highlights in your creations with some shimmering lustre, or dazzle with full cake coverage. Use a clean, soft brush to buff the lustre for a smooth finish.
