I am hoping for some advice.  I would like to stencil a round wedding cake tier.   To have the stencil gold - do I tint the royal icing,   hand paint the royal icing once on the cake, or,  stencil using metallic paint from an air brush without using royal icing?    Could anyone recommend the best method?

AI would use the air brush.

AForgot to mention: put on stencil first, add a little bit of crisco on te places that need the dust so the dust would stick

I've used yellow/gold royal icing to put the design on the cake, then hand painted it with gold..depends on the look you're going for...
