A little white edible dust mixed with rejuvenator spirit creates a fun chalky effect against black sugarpaste. Have fun playing around with what you can paint – this one’s for getting your junior bakers involved!

- You can use coloured dust instead of white and add some coloured chalk sticks to the board for a colourful chalk effect.
