I would use golden yellow colored fondant and then paint it with gold luster dust for your accents.

I used an airbrush to color the gold as a base, and gold luster with lemon extract to paint the accents.

What about using gold highlighter powder? Highlighter makes it like crome when applied right with everclear grain alcohol or vodka.

In the Cinderalla cake in my gallery/profile I just used gold luster dust and dipped a paint brush in alcohal, then in the LD and dabbed it on my palm to get it mixed up well and painted the accents.

In response to another question in this strand, there was a link to a color mixing chart for decorators.
The address is below, but you have to take out the spaces because some links are blocked from this site.

According to the chart, gold is made from 1 part Christmas red, 3 parts orange, 10 parts yellow.
