I've got Pink and Gold Fever!

Posted by Anne Yorks on Monday, June 1, 2015

You've heard of gold fever? Well, I've got PINK and gold fever! And, I have it pretty bad! In one week, I had three sets of pink and gold cookies. I was in pink and gold heaven!!!

I made this set for the class I taught with Angela from Oh, Sugar! Events (more details about the class here).

I like to use the Crystal Colors and mix a small amount with a few drops of Everclear (grain alcohol) to achieve bright and smooth gold accents. We now carry Crystal Colors in the shop. I love them because they are FDA approved. Not all dusts and metallics are approved as edible by the FDA.

We carry gold, antique gold, blush gold, elegance (which is a hybrid of gold/silver), bright silver, fairy pink, and fair blue. You can order them here!

This cake was my favorite and that little hint of gold on the scallops adds such a nice detail!

I also made very pretty pink and gold set for a charity event called Sugar & Stilettos. This event benefits the Westside Food Bank & St. Joseph Center!! The cookies were part of the Sugar & Stilettos bake sale!!

I have so many favorite designs from this set. The gown is definitely one of them. 

I used this cookie cutter to create these cookies. It is available here in the online shop.

 I also loved this cake! 

I use this cake cookie cutter all the time. I never put it away! 

I even airbrushed gold onto several cookies! 

These stencils are available in the shop too!! 

The 3rd set I made was for a pink and gold birthday. 

That cake slice is so much fun. This is the cutter I used...order it here.

I hope there are many more pink and gold cookies in my future!!

I continue to collect ideas on Pinterest and save my inspiration on my Pink and Gold Fever pin board! Click here and check out to check the pink and gold inspiration I have collected so far!!

Happy Decorating!

    Your pink is perfect. Do you add white to pink to soften the color?

    Thanks
