I agree air brush.
but i suggest you do a coloured undercoat too. when i use silver i apply it on top of mat gray icing
for gold the undercoat depends on the type of gold affect you are looking for i find that a mustard yellow works well. i have used white and pink too. the trick is to try to imagine the colour without the mettalic finish.
the advantage to using an undercoat is that it deepens the top coat and means that you dont need as much paint.
if you don't have an air brush wilton do a spray can http://www.karenscookies.net/Wilton-Color-Mist-Food-Color-Spray--Gold_p_1905.html
this product is available in the UK too
i have used it. the only size i could find was 3cm square in pack of 10 peices.
i found it REALLY Difficult but it may get eaisier with practice
Just google silver leaf cake tutorial and you'll find it. There are plenty of resources online for the large gold sheets as well.
Did you find a tutorial on this? I don't own an airbrush, so I've always used Wilton's metalic sprays. They are ok, but it's super easy to get spots that are uneven, and it tends to drip and run. I would love to see what you guys mean by gold leaf. I am not familiar with this. I'll have to give it a search! :)
I found a link to a picture by picture tutorial. She looks like she knows what she's doing. Here it is!
