How do I make gold icing?

by Anne Taylor

I have "volunteered" to be the monthly birthday cake maker at church and would like an Epiphany themed idea for decorating the top.

I am so new to this hobby and only offered if no-one else came forward. Guess what? No-one came forth!! I do have the 3 Magi, but that is all. I thought about white and gold as the colors but quickly found that I can't get gold icing. My first class is on Monday and I need a cake by Sunday!!


From the editor:

Hi Anne,

This won't help you in time for your first cake, but for future projects:

You can use Gold Sparkle Dust on royal icing or crusting buttercream and get a beautiful gold icing to use in your color schemes.

Try this easy royal icing recipe and experiment a little. It's a very versatile icing.
