Pink and Gold Isomalt Cake

This was one of my two cakes that appeared in this month's issue of American Cake Decorating, and now that the magazine has been sent out I can finally show it!

This cake was pink fondant with embedded gold leaf in the fondant itself, plus extra gold leaf applied to the surface. I made the scrollwork and the flowers from isomalt and applied gold leaf to them to make them look translucent and gold at the same time.  I applied gold leaf to the flowers centers and gold luster dust "paint" to the edges of the flowers. I also added some pink edible glitter that I made to the flowers and leaves.

Here's the video on how to make the edible glitter:
