I"m trying to
the shiny gold like the leaves and number 50 in this pic. I think the leaves might be fake paper ones but not sure. I colored my fondant a golden yellow. Pretty dark and am brushing them with a Sterling Pearl Wedding Gold. It isn't even close!
I also will be making pearls .
What can I do?
what color can I color my fondant?
Am I asking the impossilbe?
It doesn't have to be exact.... but closer than what I have .
thanks for help CC friends.
Gold lustre dust mixed with vodka to form a loose paste will work. Unless what you're using is lustre dust, but whenever i've tried to make gold fondant the lustre dust works. Good luck!
Thanks, I hope I have luster dust. I can' t seem to keep straight all those things. I will try what I have..
AYou might have more luck using a gold spray, like this one: [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3150829/width/200/height/400[/IMG] http://www.goldaskitchen.com/merchant.ihtml?pid=10339&step=4
AI've achieved that gold tone and shine by using the Wilton gold spray. Good luck!
The first picture looks like they used gold highlighter which not edible.
maybe this will help:
I haven't tried the Amerimist . Like CherriesonTop , I use (have ) the Americolor Gold Sheen.
HI and thanks for all the tips and info.
Of course I didn't want the cake to look just like the pic I posted so here is how mine turned out .
The colors didn't really come through on camera and we also had a huge snow storm. Wasn't sure if my color order was even going to arrive. I had to do with what I had on hand and what I had ordered because of the roads . I used a wedding pearl gold . It wasn't exactly how I wanted it but I was happy with it and most of all the gal that ordered it was very happy . Up close it had shine
AHi,this site is just amazing. Please I need help. Am new to baking and I want to get someone make some cake pans for me. What sizes should I ask for. And also the size of the loaf pan. Thank you so much
AYou should have started a new thread for this but.... you will find that you use a few sizes the most. You will probably need all at one point especially if your making weddig cakes. The sizes we use most are the 8" , 6" and the 10".
