Product of the Month
Tuesday, 20 January 2015 | Georgina@thevanillavalley
At the very end of the year we had a look at what trends are coming for 2015 in the world of cake decorating so it seemed only fitting that January's Product of the Month was inspired by this. Towards the end of 2014 metallic cakes were making waves, perhaps largely inspired by The Great Gatsby which was released to cinemas last year, and these look set to be an ever more popular choice this year. Check out our Pinterest board for 2015 trend inspiration.
This month we have chosen to showcase Rainbow Dust's Bright Gold Edible Pen. While this pen does not have a metallic sheen the colour is bright, bold and vibrant; a perfect base to go underneath edible shimmers or edible decorations.
The Rainbow Dust pens are such a simple and easy way to add colour to your cakes. They are double ended with a thick and thin nib allowing you to add both bold colour and intricate details. Rainbow Dust have been able to produce a pen that allows the ink to flow through both size nibs easily and without mess from the development of a specially formulated "Food Ink". Fine detail work is possible with greater control than a brush, making them a perfect choice for writing, fine drawings and even adding minute details.
The Bright Gold is a beautifully versatile colour; it works fantastically in combination with the Dark Gold pen to create depth in detailing and is a perfect accompaniment to a range of colours such as purple, red and blue.
We have a brilliant selection of other metallic colours and decorations Rainbow Dust have a brilliant range of Metallic Food Paint pots as well as a few beautiful Metallic colours in the Silk Edible Dust range. For metallic decorations we of course have a range of sugar pearls from Purple Cupcakes where sizes range from Very Tiny to Larger sizes.
These Rainbow Dust pens are currently on offer online; you can have 5 for only £9!
