How was this cake made?

What tools would you use to replicate this cake? TIA!

I believe the scrollwork on the bottom and top tiers was done with molds.

I' not sure how they did the middle tier--some all-over texture, maybe with a texture mat.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

shanter, mezmiriize, the textured tier looks like little dots like sequins but no holes in the middle like a real sequin--just tons of flat solid gold overlapping random dots

I agree.  The scroll work are molds (the one on the very bottom looks like Marvelous Molds).  I've seen the sequin look on another cake.  You can use a piping tip to make the sequins (a ton of them), let them set up some and apply - then paint the whole tier.  it's a lot of work but it sure is pretty :)

you mean use a piping tip to get a cutter small enough to cut the dots out of fondant --just clarifying, jw--

I have a question too, is that gold paint edible? I've seen some cakes that looks fantabulous with it but I wonder if it's ok to eat? Is it dust mixed with a liquid to paint?

dust mixed with alcohol like everclear, vodka, lemon extract, vanilla, almond etc--and i'd guess that was probably non-toxic--code for not edible--

 

but there's some crystal colors brand that i haven't tried yet that is edible--don't know how it does but apart from that and edible gold leaf--anything that looks that good is likely not edible--

 

like wilton has an edible that does not even blend into a paint--

 

i gotta get some of the crystal stuff--

 

i know costumeczar has mentioned using it before...

I would love to know the edible gold stuff you can just paint on too! I really can't see paying $55 to cover a single 8" tier in gold flake, as pretty as it is!

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Rainbow dust in the uk does edible metallic paints.

You could contact the baker and ask:

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Would it be this gold leaf product that was used?

It looks to me like it was painted with gold highlighter. If it was, then the gold parts aren't edible or even non-toxic and would have to be handled carefully to not contaminate the cake.

Thanks for the inputs!
To me it looks painted too but there is no way I could find something like it in Chile. We have some metallic non-toxic paints but they smell foul...! It happened to a baker friend, she wanted to paint some details with silver on a cupcake order, and she did, but it was inedible. We thought the smell would go away but it never did. So never again on something that's meant to be eaten.
