hi my friend wants me to make her a gold cake. i have got silver edible paint terfly cake which i used in on my butbut it took 3 coats of the paint to make it proper silver and its just a small bottle. i would be there forever if i was to paint the cake gold with the same paint not to mention the bottles are very small so i would need lots of bottles.

Does anyone know of some i can use instead which is quicker? or what is the best paint. Avalible in the uk

I would color the icing/fondant a golden color, like mix a golden yellow with a brown. Then I would spray with luster dust.
