Ok, here's my headache for the day. I was asked to make a cake to look like a JW book they use often. They book is red with gold lettering. I have no idea how to write it on. I thought a stencil but I'd end up smearing the previous letters. Then I though just paint (write) it on, but wouldn't that be runny? If I write it in icing could I paint over that? I'd worry about the icing "flattening" under the gold. All I have is the Wilton gold luster dust...the kind in the skinny cyliner tube. Would this work or should I get something different? I'm also lost on the mixture to get the actual "gold paint". Can anyone out there in CC Land help me? Pretty please......
Anyone? Someone has got to know how to do the gold paint look that could offer advice.
I've used vodka and gold luster dust (not Wilton) to paint on cakes. If you let your icing crust and use a gentle touch, I don't think it would make your letters flatten.
I also have seen Americolor gold food color. The next time I need something gold, I will try it. HTH.
