Hi! My regular readers have already figured out that this is a day late. Ooops. I’ve been working on organizing my sugar room and actually seeing friends in town and I just didn’t get it posted yesterday. But this is the holidays and you will forgive me, right?
One of my favorite Christmas memories is of watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on tv and the snowman/Burl Ives sings “Silver and Gold”. I really love that song and always loved how the snowman actually looked like Burl. To this day, it makes me smile. In recognition of that memory, I am going to give away my Silver Metallic Dusting Powder. This powder is made in Italy and is considered “inedible” there. In America, we would use the words “non toxic”. I use this on pieces that will be removed from the cake before it is served. It is hands down the most gorgeous silver I’ve ever worked with. I’ve been teaching with this for a while and my students all fall in love with it. It is great dry dusted on, but becomes truly amazing if mixed with alcohol or lemon extract to create a silver “paint”. I can list many decorators who are huge, huge fans of this powder.
I sell the dust on my web site at www.RuthRickey.com. I normally sell out everytime I take it to a Day of Sharing or other cake event. Here is the container:
So, does it really make a great Silver? Here are some items I’ve created with the dust.
I am going to give one of these to one of my lucky readers.
