How To Paint A Cake Super Gold
We’re always asked what the secret is to achieving a solid gold colour on cakes. It seems to be one of those techniques that everyone wants to master, and now we have discovered the perfect way to do it. With the Rolkem Super Gold metallic food colouring lustre dust, it couldn’t be easier. This truly super colour gives you a stunning result that’s comparable to gold leaf!
1. For a 6″ deep cake, mix half a pot of Super Gold with rejuvenator spirit, adding enough to make a paint. Make sure you mix enough paint to coat the entire cake, so that you can paint the first coat evenly in one go.
2. Paint the top of the cake first before working your way around the sides until it is completely covered in gold. Remember to use a good quality soft, flat brush and paint your brush strokes from side to side to achieve an even finish.
3. Once dry, use a dry brush to lightly dust the surface with some more Super Gold to intensify and enhance the colour for a deeper gold finish.
