Hi everyone!

Hope you can help with a little problem I'm having icon_smile.gif

Does anyone have some ideas as to how I can make my sugar gems shiny and gold? I'm guessing I'll have to make them, then paint them? Just posting in case any of you creative people have some tips.

Thank you in advance

You can make the gems out of fondant then paint with a gold luster dust and vodka. If you have hard sugar gems and want to paint them gold.............?????? Whatever you paint them with will dull the clear shine of the hard candy gem.
