That was my thought, too!  Maybe use the flat circles and include some different sized small round ones, too, to give it more dimension?

 

Get them on the cake then get the CK Gold Highlighter going through your airbrush.

 

PS I'm the one who posted the question about edible gold sequins (gelatin) awhile back.  I watched the tutorial and they came out AMAZING, but definitely not the look you're going for.

And be sure and tell your customer that part of the cake is not edible and not even non toxic.

Hole punches work if the gumpaste doesn't stick to them. I have the punches to make them in case I ever needed to do them again, I was going to give that a try.

This is actually for my own wedding cake not a customer icon_smile.gif and this technique will only e done on dummy tiers so I won't have to worry about anyone trying to eat it unless someone gets super drunk at the reception lol lol lol

Thankyou to each and everyone of you who took the time to reply! I'm glad it is as simple (although time consuming) as I'd thought but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything!
Thankyou for the tops of using the highlighter and the holes punch too! I certainly will !!
Thank you all again!

If it's just for dummy tiers, you should go cheap and use gold paint. I never waste my gold dusts on dummies.

100%, I'd even get a can of gold spray paint and go town on those puppies.

Great idea! Regular paint won't affect the fondant in any way?

I actually have a can of metallic gold spray paint left from a craft project I did recently icon_smile.gif

I just found an Australian cake supplier that sells the pre made edible confetti for $60 for a 5 pound box, totally just going to do that lol

I always use the small bottles of gold paint from the craft stores because they are cheap and I have only needed them for accents - not whole tiers. I don't know that spray paint would work because the propellants in them may actually melt the sugar - but I couldn't say since I've never tried. I do know that I probably wouldn't want to risk it.

If it's for a dummy for your own cake I'd just use real sequins!

It's these in different sizes:

Stuck on with with corn syrup or piping gel, then airbrushed with this:

Really easy, super fast, and totally edible.

Yes, I wondered why we were searching "edible gold sequins" for a dummy cake.  This would be fine for a dummy.
