Need to make a cake with gold accents, what is the best way to get a true gold color?
Start with yellow fondant and spray it with gold luster dust spray. I use canned air because the jars hold more color and I'm just hosing down the cake anyway. I mix the luster dust with Everclear (grain alcohol).
Spray the cake like you are spray painting - say... a chair. Keep the spray moving to prevent runs, let it dry, then hose it down again. It may take several coats to get the depth of color you want.
Maybe I'll practice before I actually need it for that cake. Thank you!
I painted an anchor gold for a navy cake and it would great. If it is just accents and not the whole cake painting could be an easy option.

I would def. paint the fondant using luster dust. I would either use the super gold or I actually like the way Astec gold looks when painted on. Just depends on now shiney you want it to look. Just make sure that you attach the pieces you are painting to the cake first and then paint them. You shouldn't touch them once they are painted. The gold tends to rub off on your hands.
