To date I have tried out a few different gold lusts and have never been totally satisfied with the results. I always found them to be too yellow looking. I've seen work by others and always wish my gold looked as good as they were able to achieve. I even inquired as to which product they were using hoping to get my hands on it.
This past week I finally figured it out and so thought I would share just in case someone else out there is having the same problem with their gold looking too yellow (or maybe I'm the only one who has this issue?)
Previously I had been using yellow fondant under the gold luster dust but this time I had some brown nearby and figured "why not?". Eureka! It worked! What a difference it made! The ball on the left is made using brown fondant and the one on the right with yellow for comparison purposes.
Hope this helps someone else :-)
Don't you just love those 'aha' moments? I'm doing a cake with gold-edged roses and gold leaves for this coming weekend. The roses are already done, but I'm going to try a light brown fondant background for the leaves. Thanks for the hint.
Isn't funny how using yellow fondant has been the go to!! But using the slightly darker colour does make perfect sense. And you proved it. Smart girl!! It's one of those...why didn't I think of this before kinda moments. Thanks for posting.
Awesome, thanks for sharing!
Glad some of you found this useful :-)
I actually used it yesterday, but with royal icing. It kept looking too yellow, so I thought of you and added a touch of brown. Viola! Thanks so much!
