Hi I have a client asking for a rose gold color cake. I have figured out how to do the dot portion of the cake BUT now I am stuck on the Rose Gold color??? Any help would be great. Oh did I mention it is eggless? Since the bride has egg allergies.
the dots are confetti right applied to the cake then painted?
i haven't done this but i would start out testing a bunch of things --mix up some gold and some pink dusts and see what i could come up with -- and i would try spraying it too -- i'd try spraying it gold then dusting it pink and vice versa -- spraying it with liquids of pink and gold combos --
if you decide to color them after they are on the cake i would definitely not leave them white before i applied them to the cake so that if coverage was not 1000% it would not be noticeable -- like pink or gold --
i hope someone that has done this exact thing pipes up but there's some ideas in the meantime
best to you
They are confetti sprinkles! I just saw a video of this technique yesterday. I agree with K8memphis on spraying it or painting it with a brush once the confetti sprinkles are applied.
where did you see the video, online somewhere perchance, k3lli3n?
and just curious -- do you pronounce your name kelly-ann or kell-yan or kell-i-en or how do you pronounce it? i like your number/name thing :)
If you have instagram, I saw it on @cakesbyrc
oh cool you have a beautiful name
Thanks so much, K8!
It is confetti sprinkles! Here's a tutorial on how its done:
Awesome, now I have to try it!
Rather than painting the confetti after its on the cake, you can make your own pre-coloured confetti.
You can use coloured gelatin dots (piped onto a non stick surface left overnight to dry) or make up some rose-gold cake lace into flat sheets and once dry make confetti using an icing tip or hole punch as your cutter.
Surely, there will be metallic rose-gold colours & cake lace mixtures already on the market, so you dont have to experiment mixing gold and pinks together?
I believe this method is taught in the Craftsy class "cakes in full bloom". It's on sale right now.....
Thank to to everyone who posted. I did get the craftsy class and yes it is covered. I really was trying to get the rose gold color. I have been playing with mixing colors.
Thx and I will post photo when finished
