Q&A with Courtney McKinnon

Ana-y Amore asked:
Beautiful and soo clean looking....question? How did u make the gold colored ribbon? How did u get the color onto the ribbon or was it mixed into the gumpaste/fondant?
Courtney McKinnon answered:
Hi, the ribbon is a gold fabric ribbon- not fondant. With the letters I painted them with gold luster dust & vodka.
