  • Couplers & Piping Bags
  • Food Gel Colourings
  • 2 Tbs Fondant (Gumpaste an option)
  • Fondant Rolling Pin
  • Small Square Cutters (a paring knife works fine too)

Hello, mind sharing what brand of gold luster dust you used? I could only get this effect with the gold highlighter and unfortunately, they aren't edible...
