Hello everyone, I have a cake to decorate in white and gold, white fondant with gold accents. I plan on using a "marvelous mold" silicone overlay to apply the accents (I just love them they make it so easy and hassle free) but my question is, if I want the overlay to be gold, should I airbrush the fondant before laying it on the mold and rolling it etc or should I use luster dust as I worry the airbrush would take too long to dry. My hands are too shaky to paint the luster on once the inlay is on the cake!!! Has anyone any ideas??? Thanks in advance!

I painted after I put it on the cake and it was very tedious because I did not want any paint to go on the fondant that was under.  If you can paint it before you put it on the cake that would be the best.
