If i want to paint the accents on my cake I use gold luster dust mixed with vodka? I've used "old gold" luster dust mixed with vodka but it isn't what Im looking for. I want it to appear very gold. What do I use? And what Brand is best?

I like the gold sheen airbrush color by Amerimist.

If it's little detail piped on the cake how would I airbrush that?

I came across this cake on this site. This is the kind of gold finish I'm looking for

I've used Wilton's gold pearl dust mixed with clear vanilla extract & have gotten a nice metallic gold before. I hope this helps!!!!! icon_smile.gif

I've used a powdered gold highlighter mixed with vodka to get a real gold color. You can see my bible cake in my gallery. I don't know the brand, I got it at my local cake supply store.

Just remember that gold highlighter is not edible. It's for decorative use only and should be used on items that will be removed before eating.
