I need to make cookies using royal icing. White background and gold dots. I would like to use the wet on wet technique, but I don't know how to make gold royal icing. Any help?
I think you would have to paint the RI with the dust & alcohol after it drys.
You can probably mix in an edible gold luster like Roxy & Rich Hybrid Sparkle Dust [https://www.roxyandrich.com/food-coloring/hybrid-sparkle-dust], but it will never shine as much as painting it on.
You could use a polka dot stencil, a dauber, or a stylus: https://plaidonline.com/blog/july-2014/how-to-paint-polka-dots-professionally
Cool. I was planing of doing this over the weekend. Good thing I read this thread.
The plan was postponed. I'll try to have it done this coming weekend.
By the way, where did you source your ingredients?
Hope someone with a good heart would share their sources.
I ordered mine from Edna de la Cruz's on-line store at Design Me A Cake. It is beautiful, but it is not edible.
