Why don't my gold accents ever come out looking gold? I am using gold glaze to paint fondant to get that gold effect but it never comes out looking quit right. I see lots of different gold accents on this website that look brilliant so what am I missing?

Hi There,

I have used the gold affect quite a lot. I have gold powder - you can use it two ways, sprinkle it over the fondant and rub it over with a big brush or your hand or you can mix it with alcohol if you need to paint something fine with it.

I am not sure what your gold glaze is, but is it is something I bought once, it is not nearly as affective as the gold dust.

Hope this helps

I start out with yellowish fondant, then paint it with gold luster dust mixed with vodka. It works pretty well for me.

Hi Charmed,

The brand is called "Cake Ornament Co". It Gold power and I have the silver as well. Looking at it now, I think it is packed through a company in QLD, Australia. There is no other detail on it.

It is brilliant in both the gold and silver. The silver you can make look like stainless steele if you rub it on fondant with you hand. I have a toaster in my pictures that I used the silver on and a Cartier Gift box I used the gold on.

Hope this helps, if you need any other info, drop me a line.
Cheers from Oz,

Is there a difference in the types of dust you can purchase ( I hear them referred to as luster dust, disco dust, and several other terms)? Are these all the same thing or are they different and what is the difference? I have some dust I purchased, it's Wilton brand, and it did not really work the way you are describing. Is there a brand that you really like that really gives good coverage and can be purchased in the US in a Michael's, Joann's, or cake decorating store or online?
Thanks icon_smile.gif
