I am needing advice on how to get this design on a 3 tier cake I'm doing. I was planning to use black fondant, should I use a gold luster dust/vodka paint? I've never painted on black fondant before. Help!!

So i guess the picture didn't upload! Here's a link for the cake I'm recreating, I'm planning to do this cake with 3 tiers instead of 4. I'm just wondering the best way to get that gold.

Same cake as the photo, Liz Marek from Artisan Cake co has a blog/video of different gold luster products and how they perform. 


Here is the video comparing products as different golds produce different effects 



i think there is a link in the video that corresponds to the blog she also wrote on the subject
