Hi friends. This is an incredibly hard day to post a giveaway. I don’t want to skip it, but my heart is deeply saddened by the tragedy in Connecticut this morning. I firmly believe that we are spending too much time looking within and not enough looking without. We have to be better neighbors and practice Random Acts of Kindness (did you read my Christmas Crazies post today?). We have to find a way to let go of the trivial and to focus on all the great things we have. So, for the 10th day of giveaways, it is going to be about Gold.
The Golden Rule tells us to do unto others as we would like for them to do unto us. In recognition of the Golden rule, I am going to give away my Gold Metallic Dusting Powder. This powder is made in Italy and is considered “inedible” there. In America, we would use the words “non toxic”. I use this on pieces that will be removed from the cake before it is served. It is hands down the most gorgeous gold I’ve ever worked with. I’ve been teaching with this for a while and my students all fall in love with it. It is great dry dusted on, but becomes truly amazing if mixed with alcohol or lemon extract to create a gold “paint”. I can list many decorators who are huge, huge fans of this powder.
I sell the dust on my web site at www.RuthRickey.com. I normally sell out everytime I take it to a Day of Sharing or other cake event. Here is the container:
So, does it really make a great gold? Here are some items I’ve created with the gold.
I am going to give one of these to one of my lucky readers.
