I've been researching edible lustre dusts for a wedding cake but I'm having trouble finding a good colour match online (there is nowhere in town that sells these other than the wilton shimmer dusts). It looks like more of a rose gold colour to me. Any suggestions on a brand/colour? I have to color 2 single layer cakes (8" and 12") so the quantity of cake might also be a factor.
the best i could do with that is mix the color -- i mean the lighting is influencing the color --the gold is reflecting the pink tiers -- maybe they put the gold over the pink fondant -- it's quite a case of "who knows?" kwim
It's always hard to match colors exactly - especially one found on the internet. Each computer shows a color differently. Also, as K8 said, lighting and other factors effect it. I think your best bet is to just get any good brand of gold dust and if you want that pink undertone, add just a tiny bit of pink dust.
Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
Do you know how many jars I would need to cover 2" high 8" and 12" rounds approx? Those little jars seem so little :/
They surprisingly go farther than you might think. I bet one would do it but just in case get 2 :)
when i was doing cakes i routinely bought more than i thought i needed because i'm just a freak that way
Lol I guess it's better to have more on hand than not enough
I'll order a couple and hopefully that'll do it.
I appreciate all the help guys!
