"I would like my cake to
be iced in gold icing rather than white - do you have any suggestions
to what colour food colouring I can put in it?"
Thanks for your enquiry.
I can suggest the following;
Leaf' paste food colour
(£1.62) could be used to colour the sugarpaste or royal icing.
This would give an old gold non metallic finish.
Gold' Edible Lustre
Dusts(£1.50) or Squires Kitchen
Gold' Edible Lustre Powder
Colours (£2.85) could be dusted on to the icing after you had
covered the cakes. This would then give the icing a lustre.
3) We are expecting delivery shortly
of a new Edible
Gold Liquid Food Colour from
Sugarflair which can be painted on to the icing.
sent us a
sample of the colour of the gold
material we could advise which of the above would give the best
effect. Alternatively you could call into our shop in York or
