Just wondering if anyone know how to color fondant copper. I saw a beautiful cake on the back of my american cakes magazine and I can't find copper coloring, only copper dust. Anyone have the mag and know how that color was made?

My guess would be colour it light brown and then airbrush or paint with the copper luster dust mixed with vodka. All the metalic cakes you see are done this way, there's no way to actually colour the fondant itself metalic.
