Hi, I would colour the fondant with Americolour Gold colour and then cut the ribbons. And then dry dust them with a gold shade that you like. There are so many shades that you can get. icon_smile.gif

If you don't have access to a cake decorating supply store and Americolor, you can also use Wilton's yellow and then dust it with Wilton's gold dust. It won't be as gold-looking as it would with the other stuff but it will still look like gold.

I like to use Americolor's airbrush metallic colors. I don't have an airbrush so I just apply them with a paintbrush and it works great.

Oh yes, the Americolor airbrush colors I heard works great.

Good luck.

Other than online ordering, the airbrush colors can usually be found at a cake decorating store.

Order them at if you live in the western side of the US.

It will get to you really fast, you can even call and ask the owner to ship it as soon as you place the order.
