Hi, can some one tell me how i can make a smal quantity of gold icing to write on a cake. Tried writing with royal icing and painting over but its not neat. Is there any edible( ink) gold pen that i can use. Please please please. Thank you.

Pipe it with royal icing on parchment paper. Let it harden , then paint it gold (or airbrush) on the parchment paper. Take it off the paper and add it to the cake. Glue it on with royal icing if needed.

this is in recipes by GOOD36
2 ts. powdered sugar
2 ts. gold silver or metallic dusting powder
clear alcohol
1 ts. piping gel

on a small ceramic plate, mix sugar and dusting powder. add a few drops of clear alcohol (vodka) and mix with a small palette knife to create a stiff paste.

add the piping gel, a little at a time, mixing well until the consistency for piping is reached. use a very small piping bag and tip as needed. the leftovers can be put into a small container and stored in the refrigerator. it will keep indefinitely.
