I meant the satiny gold color, not the bow itself.
Thanks.

Thanks, Icer101. Wondering which of the two methods is better for the look I want: airbrushing or brushing the ribbon with a mix of gold and lemon extract or such.

If you look at the gold on our Mardi Gras Cake, ( which turned out richer than any other gold we've done, we used light yellow fondant, and handpainted golden flake from the sugar art . com I like it better than any powdered gold I've used except the bold gold or maybe its true gold from chef rubber.

Beautiful cake, snarkynaker. What did you use to mix the golden flake with?

extract or everclear. We use a rum extract here that is 70% alcohol by volume and that seems to be a nice consistency, not streaky, doesn't dry too fast.

Thanks for your advice.I'll try it on a piece of fondant before painting the ribbon for the bow.
