I need to accent a graduation cake with gold fondant (the school colors are green and gold). What would be the best way to do that? Would it make sense to start out with yellow or white? And what would I color it with or would I just use a dust on it? Sorry for all the questions - I've never accented a cake with gold!
Thanks in advance!
There are gold metallic dusts that can be mixed with something like Vodka and painted on.
Or you can just use regular paste colors and tint the fondant a golden yellow. My school colors were blue and gold and it was a golden yellow - never a 'real gold' shade - I bet that's what your 'gold' is also :)
There is also gold metallic food color that you can paint with. The pile of gold under the dragon in my avatar was done with this.
