How do I make gold colored fondant or royal icing? I tried painting white fondant with gold lustre dust that was mixed with alcohol. That didn't work at all! I would love to hear suggestions. Thanks.

Here is a sugestion, color your fondant brown (not very dark) and then use the gold luster dust on top.

you can also start wth yellow as a base colour. then you still need to go over it with the lustre dust.

when i mix my luster dust with vodka, i dont think it to much, i keep it quite think, almost like a paste but with a spreadable consitancy, i find it has much deeper and stronger colour that way icon_smile.gif
