The only way to get it silver or gold is to paint it with luster dust or a shimmer airbrush color. That's the only way I can think of.

the best way to make gold/ silver is to make/ buy yellow/gray fondant, and dust/ paint with lustre dust (mixed with vodka to paint - an airbrush gives a better finish than painting, but painting works too).
you might want to edit your profile so your location shows up as uk - can help to cut down on responses which include only usa products.
