I hope to write in the right section. Please, sorry for my english but I love it and I hope that my english will be good
I'm italian, from Sicily, I'm a young wife, I study at the university and I like your forum and love your cakes and cookies, they are so nice! I love to create my cakes and sicilian desserts , but next month my sister will be 18 years old so I have thought to make a beautiful cake in oriental style with a Geisha as a cake topper, she loves Japan! The colors that I will use will be red, black and gold. But I have a problem, what kind of gold color do you recommend to paint the cake? I would make some gold decorations by brush...
Thank you for your attention, I hope that you will help me, this is my first experience with a monumental cake
Welcome!!! You will love this forum everyone is so nice and helpful! You can use an edible gold glaze or edible gold luster dust with some vodka added. Either one you can paint on! Good Luck and enjoy Cake Central!
Welcome to CC! My grandparents were from Palermo.
I've done what Karen mentioned with the gold glaze and luster dust many times. Another option is to use an airbrush system. But if you are just doing small decorations, either the gold glaze or luster dust will work just fine.
Now....about those Sicilian desserts....................
Thank you for your replies and advices
And if I would use a gold royal icing? Is edible gold luster good to adding?
itsmylife, really? from Palermo? I'm from oriental sicily, on the opposite, in these days I'll let you know some sicilian recipe
Karen thank you too!
