I have a 50th anniversary cake this weekend and was wanting to make gold calla lilies. How do I color fondant gold? What colors do I mix to make gold?

I would try making them in white and then painting them with gold dust thinned with any clear alcohol or lemon extract.

Hi there, I would colour the gumpsate using the Gold colour in Americolour. Here is the link for you,

Then make the callas, leave it to dry completely and then choose a gold lustre colour that you like and mix it with clear extract, clear alcohol or confectioner's glaze and paint the callas. Try doing that or try just dry brushing them with gold lustre dust.
