will Wilton pearl dust make icing a gold color if mixed in. I would like to make icing a metallic gold to pipe around the cake, and I am wondering how to create a metallic gold, will the Wilton pearl dust work? Is there anything else?

The gold sheen airbrush color by Amerimist works well. Mix it with a little vodka or lemon extract to help it dry faster. I think that with the Wilton you have to do 2-3 coats.

Wilton's pearl dusts are not meant to be mixed into buttercream as a coloring.

I would pipe what design you want then come back over it and brush that with the pearl dust mixed with lemon extract or an alcohol like everclear or vodka.

Opps! I missed the part about mixing it into icing. My response was for painting it on. I don't think there is anything that is edible that can be mixed into icing to make it gold.

As TexasRose said it is not supposed to be mixed in.
