AI'm doing my cousins wedding cake in March. Iv done many cakes but I'm not sure how this gold was achieved. It's not as bright if a gold. More like Champaign. Does anyone have any ideas that could help? [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3190426/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
AThere are many many forum posts about gold cakes. You might try searching for those to get a variety of ideas and try some of them out on a small cake or cake dummy.
Has it been airbrushed or painted?
AI use an airbrush for larger cakes, but the finish is more matte. For a shinier finish I brush gold luster dust mixed with everclear onto the surface in a few coats until I get the desired look. But I do agree with the other poster, you really need to test it out for yourself since there are many different golds on the market.
