Hi I'm making a graduation cake for a girl that goes to my church and one of her school colors is gold. I'm new to mixing colors so I don't know how to make gold yet. Any suggestions?
You can make gold with 10 parts Lemon Yellow + 3 parts Orange + 1 part Red. You might need to adjust the parts a bit depending on the exact shade you want...and make sure you make it a shade or so lighter than you'd like, and let it sit overnight, to see how dark it gets.
You can get color basics here: http://www.baking911.com/decorating/tinting.htm
id be more tempted to use a yellow icing (fondant, bc, royal, depends ony our design - although id be making gold an accent here!), then mix lustre dust and alcohol to a paint, and paint over the yellow.
Windemere- the link you posted isn't working. Would you mind reposted it? Also, what do you mean by parts? How does that equate to measurements
parts just means the measurement you use, whether its drops or toothpicks of colour, or in recipes it could mean cups, grams/ oz.

Just remove the spaces between the words and it should work fine.
Thanks so much for all the help. The cake turned out great and was a big hit!
