This upcoming cake I'm doing is going to be pink and I want to do the gold leaf look like this cake (this isnt what I'm doing it just shows the gold).....
How do I get this deep gold look? Would I let the royal icing dry then paint over it with wet luster dust? Or is there a way to mix it right in the icing before piping?
Would I let the royal icing dry then paint over it with wet luster dust? yes
Yes, that's what I would do!
