Hi, I need help please. Im making a 50th wedding anniversary cake. Im not keen to use fondant and want to use chocolate ganache instead.It will be a 3 tiered cake. But, I want to paint the cake on the sides and on the top tier with gold using stencils. Im worried the paint wont show through or will bleed and be messy. Please help. Thanks in advance

Here's a picture:
HungryHappenings.com has a Firework cake, they mixed luster with vodka and painted it on. I've tried to do this on plain molded chocolate pieces and it always beads up, perhaps I used too much liquid because they made it work!
I'd do the dry dust method so nothing bleeds. You should do a trial run like they did in the first link.
There are just so many neat tricks out there!
SMckinney, On the flag cake in my gallery I used gold dust to make medallions and I just dusted it on when they were really cold and stuck perfectly.
Old gold by CK. I just happened to have it out..lol
My local cake store is so great....they have endless colors of shimmer and disco dusts so I never have to order that stuff. Same with gel and powdered food colors. They sell a brand named spectrum which I have never heard of but it works great. I want to try the Americolors though because I have heard so much about them. I'm just going to wait until I run low on what I have which will be awhile.
