On most of Lori Hutchinson (The Caketress) cakes she has these beautiful gold accents. Is this gold highlighter? I'm wanting to achieve a bit of this look and want to make sure I order the correct thing..

Edited to add: I have Food Grade Edible Gold and Silver Glaze - but it always goes on really thick and sticky like. It's almost a paste consistency. I haven't been able to get a smooth attractive finish with it.

They are gorgeous cakes, just been looking at some. Try thinning out a little with something like Vodka or lemon juice. Put on thin coat, let dry, recoat..... Or thin coat then gold luster dust to finish.

The above should read "Lemon Extract", not lemon juice. icon_smile.gif
