Here is the stuff I use:

It's not cutting it for me anymore. I want the stuff that makes whatever you painted look like it was truly dipped in gold...know what I mean?? And not the spray stuff either. Maybe it's gold luster dust, but I don't think so. Where can I find it? Iseee a lot of products that look like it maybe what I am looking for, but someone knows for sure...help??!!

Thanks in advance guys!

Jamie

for the bright shiny gold, I use Gold Highlighter mixed with a dab of vodka.

When I took a couple of Debbie Brown classes last month, we used a gold powder that was new and it was AMAZINGLY bright and beautiful. If you call the All In One Bakeshop in Austin and ask for Jennifer, she will be able to tell you what gold that was. And when you do, please post here because I want to order some too. I meant to buy some while I was there but at the end of 4 LONG and exhausting days of classes, I just wanted to get on the road and head back home. icon_smile.gif

I just read today on another site that they color their buttercream with 10 parts lemon yellow, 3 parts orange and 1 part red...then finish it off with gold luster dust mixed in vodka. I've never tried it, but thought I'd pass the info along. Good luck and let us know what works for you!

Thanks for the tips guys. This will primarily be for gp and fondant accents.

I've had good results with ECG gold highlighter. Here's a link to where I got it:

Ok,
Here it is, go to www.auiswiss.com item number 204160 for the gold and they also have the silver.
I took a class with Bronwen Webber and she gave me the inside.
This product is non edible but is non toxic and you can only use it for accents not for the whole cake, if you need to color the whole cake use the luster dust or the gold spray paint.

Mix it with vodka and you have pure gold and silver color.

Here is the link http://www.auiswisscatalogue.com/204160/&search=gold+dust&offset=0&filter_cat=&PowerSearch_Begin_Only=&sort=&range_low=&range_high=%20.html

Good luck

I love Aztec Gold lustre dust, a lot of it mixed with just a touch of clear alcohol then painted on gives me the look I'm wanting. I used it for the crown of the Sleeping Beauty cake in my photos.

I usually use gold hilighter and alcohol. but for an AMAZING gold finish (if you have customers willing to pay extra) you can always get edible gold leaf (you can also get edible silver leaf). It's real gold (23k, usually) but it's truly edible... a lot of high end restaurants use it to accent desserts, but it can be used for cake accents as well... just be sure to charge for it!

I have some gold highlighter...I don't use it too much except small accents or on figures because its technically non edible.... I wouldn't airbrush it all over the cake. Its cool stuff though!

I've used the gold leaf at a catering place before...its really neat, looks great on cake ball/truffles. But its very thin and wispy and difficult to use in a controlled way, at least I think so. I wouldn't know how to use it to actually cover a fondant decoration.

Those look like HUGE bottles too!!

The bottle is not that big is 3" tall by 1.5" wide but it has a lot of powder inside and a little bit goes a loooong way.

Like I said I only use it for smaller accents not for the whole cake.
