Can someone please tell me how I can get a rose gold color buttercream. The person I’m making this for would like a rose gold ombré rosette cake with gold glitters all over it. I would appreciate any help thanks!

The only way I know of that you could achieve this is with an airbrush.  There are no really glittery glitters that are edible.  Sanding sugars would probably as close as you could get.

@sandrasmiley Hello! How can I spray the rose gold? Do I have to buy a gel?

Most people use colors especially for an airbrush, when airbrushing, but I do believe gel color thinned with alcohol can also be used.  Wilton makes a gold aerosol spray, but it tends toward the yellow side instead of rose.  I know some people  paint on buttercream, but I never have.  If you use a buttercream that crusts firmly, you could dry brush on a rose gold dust.  

You should really try some of this stuff in advance, but it seems to me if the buttercream was tinted a soft, dusty rose pink, left to crust, then dry brushed with a gold dust from the bottom, grading into a rose gold dust toward the middle of the tier, would be a nice effect.  Hope this makes sense.

I doubt gel colors thinned w/anything would work - it most likely would gum up the sprayer

That ^^^ is what I would suggest.  Use this recipe for the icing and let it dry a couple of hours before dry brushing:  https://www.cakecentral.com/recipe/22469/2-icing    Especially pay attntion to the bottom of the directions where it tell you how to make the icing crust:)

kakeladi, I do not have an airbrush and, if I did I would not use anything but airbrush colors in it.  I have heard losts of people, though, say they used gel color thinned with alcohol in their airbrush and it worked fine.  I've also heard others say it did not.  As I said, if I ever get one, I will be using colors made for the airbrush.

I totally agree with you, kakeladi!  As I said above, if I ever get an airbursh, I will be using colors made especially for that purpose!
