HI CC, I have a huge problem.........I have been asked LAST MINUTE to make an NBA FINALS TROPHY CAKE for a birthday this WEEKEND and of course the cake is GOLD. I didn't want to do it in fondant but in buttercream the only thing is I don't know of any thing to mix together to make a gold liquid color because all of Wilton's are yellow looking even though it says GOLD on the bottle.... I COULD REALLY USE EVERYONE'S OPINIONS cuz I'm truely lost, thanks!!!!!!!!!!
