Topic: Stanley supposed to be Silver not Grey!
christyw 05/01/2009 3:54 PM
Hey all
Very new to this forum thing but I've been making cakes for my nephew since he was born and this year I'm stumped. He turns 9 this year and wants a Stanley Cup cake, which architecturally I think should be pretty easy, but I can't figure out how to make it silver. I'm not a fondant user as kids think it tastes gross (I agree) so I generally use icing or buttercream, but I don't want the cake to be just gray. Does anyone have suggestions on how to make my Stanley Cup a nice silver without resorting to just being lazy and covering it in tinfoil!???

Hi christyw - my son too has been involved in ice hockey and I've done my share of theme cakes for him .. I suggest using silver luster dust on white (my personal choice) or grey (team favorite) buttercream. Dip dry paintbrush into silver dust and blow it on. It takes a lot of dust but results are fantastic! The other hockey moms will swoon over your creativity!

good luck!
