Rose gold is considered by many to be the most romantic and beautiful metal in the world due to its pinkish-red colour and dreamy hues. Did you know that you can easily create your own rose gold cakes using our Metallic Rose Gold Lustre?
This rose gold cake was inspired by the work of Nauty Little Treats, who has created a number of beautiful rose gold cakes. Find out how to re-create some of these elements below!
In order to make the most of the Rose Gold Lustre and bring out the best in its beautiful hues, it needs the perfect base colour. Pink is the perfect colour to compliment Rose Gold. Paired together, the tones are enriched and therefore, the rose gold properties are enhanced. That’s why we have created the NEW Renshaw Icing Shimmer Kit in 3 shades including Rose Gold.
Already purchased your Lustre separately? Try our Pink RTR Icing as your base for the same result.
Painting with Lustre is an easy and stress-free way of applying a gorgeous sparkle to a cake. The colour of the lustre will intensify slightly with this method. The icing on this cake has been painted with this method.
Voila! You have a gorgeous metallic cake. Now time for a close up…
Simply stunning – and tasty too! Check out how to incorporate a stencil with your Lustre paint in our Art Deco Cake tutorial:
The heart topper for this cake was made with Flower and Modelling Paste then painted with Rainbow Dust Powder Colours. These were also used to paint flowers onto the decorative macarons.
Top tip: Snow Drift can be added to coloured cocoa butter to lighten the colour and make it opaque.
Renshaw Royal Icing was used to create the drip effect on this cake, by watering it down gradually. To create the white chocolate colour on this drip pattern, add Rainbow Dust Cream ProGel to your Royal Icing. Using Royal Icing will achieve a superior drip effect than if you used melted chocolate instead.
