Help! Good evening all I am attempting a cake for my daughters sorority Family Night mixer tomorrow. I am making the Sorority's crest which requires Gold colored icing which I do not have and this is pretty much my deput cake after completing Wiltons 1 2 and 3 Courses so I really want this to be a great one ) any suggestions what colors I can mix to make a Gold color?
Thank you in advance!!
this is from roland winbecklers flower book.. he starts with bright yellow ICING...ICING now.. not color.... then he adds. a small amt. of red ICING.. then a still smaller amt. of blue ICING..hth
Wow!! Ok I will definitely do that! Thank you sooooo much!!!!
you are welcome. hope it turns out. let us know..ha!
I will!! The pressures on!!!
I'm sure Roland knows what he is talking about.....but those three colors make brown in equal amounts so in effect you are adding brown to yellow...much easier.
I use the golden yellow color and add brown to get desired color.
Thank you so much everyone for all of suggestions, I cant tell you how much I appreciate it
Nanny, I do have Golden Yellow and that was pretty close to Gold but not quite close enough to the color that I needed, but I see what you guys are suggesting in regards to adding a little brown to darken it up a little and that'll do the trick!
Wish me luck!
