TOP TIP: LET YOUR ICING SET BEFORE PAINTING
Leave your Royal Icing to set before painting with Metallic Paint. You don’t want to risk pressing through your perfectly piped icing with your paintbrush.
FALL FOR ROYAL ICING
Royal Icing is perfect for covering, piping and detailed work on both cakes and biscuits. For firm icing, you can use Royal Icing straight from the pot once mixed.
For run-outs, mix in a couple of drops of cooled boiled water at a time until you achieve the desired consistency. If you need to thicken the icing, add 1tsp of sieved icing sugar at a time. Check out Emma Chamberlain’s blog to find out more about how to use Royal Icing.
FALL FOR METALLIC PAINTS
Rainbow Dust Metallic Paints add opulent and indulgent shine to your cakes and decorations. It’s easy to apply with a brush or sponge, or you can dilute them to use in your airbrush for a glowing finish.
Brush your Metallic Paint over tinfoil and leave to dry, before scrunching it together to create edible metallic flakes like faux gold leaf which is trending in cake decoration. A beautiful way to add Metallic Paint to a cake or biscuit is by using a stencil and a sponge to add a pattern or using a large brush, brush upward from the bottom to form a feathered shimmery base.
