Gold color

I have created some fondant appliques and molds that I need to color in a very shiny and deep gold color (like the italian jewelry) for an indian wedding.  Please I need suggestions in what color or mix of colors to use.  I have been trying to get to the right color to no avail.  I will appreciate your suggestions.

My 1st Travel "Disaster"

I had my first travel "disaster" with a cake this past weekend, and I was delivering a very large and heavy wedding cake. For some reason, my brain didn't remind me to "glue" the bottom layer cake board to the cake drum. The cake slid right off the drum and was sitting cockeyed in the cargo area of my Explorer.


As for the construction damage, there was none. My brain did tell me to use extra reinforcements in this cake. It had both PVC & dowel rods in it. I did this…
