O.K. I need help on coloring fondant and buttercream gold. I have to make a crown cake and a beer can(miller high life) this weekend and am nervous about the colors. Also, they want this prince crown cake to "stand up"...any suggestions?

Mix some gold highlighter metallic dust with some lemon extract or vodka to paint the items. You can find it online at sugarcraft.com

Are you looking for a shiny gold or just a gold color? What do you have on hand?
