how the heck do I make gold icing and gold fondant? I know about the gold luster dust but can I mix that in my BC and would I just paint the fondant with it?OR is there gold icing gel from some company?
you can paint on fondant with luster dust mixed with vodka or clear extract like almond. you can add a lot of dust to make it really gold or a little to just make a bit of a shimmer.
you can also add luster dust to piping gel but that wouldn't dry like it would if mixed with vodka.
as far as bc, i would use a golden or yellow paste color added to the bc and then sprinkle luster dust on top of the frosted cake, it wouldn't be as gold as the painted fondant though.
I know wilton makes spray on food coloring, i don't think they have metalics but you could try to find a gold food spray.
yes , i use americolor gold gel for my buttercream and fondant. it is a beautiful gold. as usual, use a little at the time until you achieve the color you want.
I've used a gold lustre spray before. It's completely edible and is just like a can of spray paint. You can see the gold one in my pics, it's not great - was done on fondant- but with a little practise I'm sure you'd get on fine.
