How To Use Luster Dust On Chocolate!


3 minute read

Let's learn how to use luster dust on chocolate! 

With our edible paint solvent, THE COLOR SOLUTION and best selling edible luster dust line, STERLING PEARLS - it's a total breeze! All products used in this demonstration will be linked at the end of this blog! So be sure to scroll all the way down! 

BUT FIRST, VIBRANT RED & BLUE ICING?!

Products Used Are Linked At The End: Red Rose Master Elite & Sapphire Sky Master Elite!

Master Elite Food Colors are INCREDIBLE for any type of buttercream, but you need to first ACTIVATE the color! As you may have noticed, Master Elites are raw pigment food colors and the color you see in the jar is not ultimately the color you will get when using inside of your confection! They must be activated by moisture. The Master Elite will bloom instantly when in contact with moisture!

Courtney uses the "melting method" when tinting her Swiss Meringue Buttercream with Master Elites. You can find the FULL TUTORIAL on the "melting method" at the link below!

Mix the powder color until fully dissolved, then add it back to your master batch of buttercream. Watch the full demonstration on this at the link below:

What you will do is take a small amount of your master batch of buttercream, then warm it for about 10 seconds in the microwave. Once the buttercream has melted, add about 1/16th of a tsp of Master Elite Color - in this demonstration, Courtney used MASTER ELITE RED ROSE (click here) and MASTER ELITE SAPPHIRE SKY (click here). 

PAINTING LUSTER DUST ON CHOCOLATE

Products Used Are Linked At The End: Color Solution, Paint Brush Set, Red Pearl and Blue Pearl Luster Dusts!

Adding macarons to your letter cake is the PERFECT topper! Master Elites are PERFECT for coloring your French macarons! Since they are DRY food coloring, adding the powder colors to your macaron batter will not affect the integrity of your macaron batter ... in fact, Master Elites achieve the MOST vibrant colors for French OR Italian Macarons! Full tutorials on coloring macarons linked below!
