I am makng a "50th" anniversary cake.
The picture has gold fondant cutouts that look like scrollwork. the picture says the person bought the scroll cutouts but it doesn't say where?? Also I can't find a gold without looking too much like yellow. Do I add the shimmery gold to the fondant am mix it or paint it on afterwards? Please help ASAP

Cut the scrolls out of yellow fondant, then brush with edible gold paint.

you make it from gold luster dust and grain alcohol or vodka

I made cut out scrolls for a 25th anniversary cake (see my pics). It was a lot easier than I thought. I just cut varying lengths of very thin fondant and tapered the ends. Then I made all different size curls - almost like an S. I let them firm up and then I painted them with Americolor airbrush silver food coloring - no mixing. Americolor also sells Gold. I used an airbrush, but you can just paint it right on the fondant with a brush. Good Luck.
