Hi I have a client asking for a rose gold color cake.  I have figured out how to do the dot portion of the cake BUT now I am stuck on the Rose Gold color???  Any help would be great.  Oh did I mention it is eggless?  Since the bride has egg allergies.

the dots are confetti right applied to the cake then painted?

i haven't done this but i would start out testing a bunch of things --mix up some gold and some pink dusts and see what i could come up with -- and i would try spraying it too -- i'd try spraying it gold then dusting it pink and vice versa -- spraying it with liquids of pink and gold combos --

if you decide to color them after they are on the cake i would definitely not leave them white before i applied them to the cake so that if coverage was not 1000% it would not be noticeable -- like pink or gold --

i hope someone that has done this exact thing pipes up but there's some ideas in the meantime

best to you

They are confetti sprinkles! I just saw a video of this technique yesterday. I agree with K8memphis on spraying it or painting it with a brush once the confetti sprinkles are applied.

Rather than painting the confetti after its on the cake, you can make your own pre-coloured confetti.  

You can use coloured gelatin dots (piped onto a non stick surface left overnight to dry) or make up some rose-gold cake lace into flat sheets and once dry make confetti using an icing tip or hole punch as your cutter.

Surely, there will be metallic rose-gold colours & cake lace mixtures already on the market, so you dont have to experiment mixing gold and pinks together?

I believe this method is taught in the Craftsy class "cakes in full bloom".  It's on sale right now.....

Thank to to everyone who posted. I did get the craftsy class and yes it is covered. I really was trying to get the rose gold color.  I have been playing with mixing colors.

Thx and I will post photo when finished
