Hello, thanks for the compliment. The cake was actually iced in white fondant but covering a cake this size in ready mixed black fondant was just going to be too expensive so I airbrushed it in undiluted edible back food colouring first. That was followed by a fine coat of metallic silver diluted with vodka. I then removed some of the coloured areas with a damp cloth which exposed some of the white icing and then dry brushed dark green and metallic silver powder colour to add the highlights. The whole cake was then given a coat of edible varnish to give it the sheen and bring out the colours. I hope that all makes sense :)
