HI,

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!

AI've achieved that gold tone and shine by using the Wilton gold spray. Good luck!

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

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".
