Sweet Bliss asked:
Beautiful!!! How did you color the gold fondant for the middle tier???? Is it gold petal dust on a pink tier?
kate6207 answered:
It is gold petal dust on a pink tier. I hand painted the antique gold luster dust mixed with vodka with a wide square brush and purposefully left some of the pink peeking through.
