Peacock cookies - quick and easy with Rainbow Dust lustres

We recently showcased these cookies at the Cake Expo here in Auckland this weekend passed. These rich & lustrous cookies were made with the tools shown below and Rainbow Dust edible lustres & metallic edible paints. We baked a simple sugar cookie recipe using the Autumn Carpenter autumn carpenter peacock set . Once cooled we attached Satin ice chocolate fondant that had been embossed with Autumn Carpenter peacock impression mat set using edible glue from Rainbow Dust.

To decorate I started with the eye of the feather, dusting a little gold lustre, followed by either of the two blue metallic paints - midnight blue or royal blue (As I did a number of cookies, I used different blues on different cookies). Using a large fluffy brush I alternated brushing the cookies with irridescent lilac fusion, irrisdescent green fusion, starlight comet green and blue shimmer lustre dusts. Once the cookies were completely covered in lustre dust, I took one large brush and in a single sweeping motion blended the colours together. This merged the eye of the feather with the lustred area. 
Rainbow Dust lustres come in a wide variety of colours, that represent well metallic colours of everyday items we try to replicate in cake and cookie form such as as metal, feathers, nail polish, eyeshadow, jewellery and much more. At Kiwicakes we stock every colour in the range - see here
