Hi guys,
I bought a gold paint, but it's not that nice gold you see the cake decorators on TV using to paint their details. It's called glaze, so maybe that's why.
Has anyone used Americolor Amerimist Gold metallic sheen? is this the thick real gold color I am looking for? I have to buy it online, so I want to make sure it's what I need before ordering.
If this isn't, does anyone know which gold is the best? thanks so much!

Thanks. Yes, I have tried that, but that's thin, too. I want a paint that really looks gold in one stroke. I see them use it on every tv show. as soon as they pass the brush over a border or royal icing piping, it's a brilliant gold.

Someone told me that they use gold luster dust mixed with clear piping gel. That should come out thicker.

in the UK at Squires kitchen I think they sell a gold,silver ,bronze liquid paint.I bought it once and it was liquidy alright but hard to get off of my paintbrush and smelled not very good...That might be what you are referring too....

The stuff they use on TV is called gold highlighter. It's a powder, just like lustre dust that you'd mix with vodka. But it does give you that real gold, metallic look in one stroke. It really works well. But it is not edible and, even though it is sold as a cake decorating supply, it is not meant to be used on anything that will be eaten.

If you'll notice when they use it on TV, they only use it on decorative elements that can be removed from the cake before serving.

Edna De La Cruz has a video on this on youtube, it is very helpful and she explains which colors are edible and non edible. HTH!!!

Really? But, I've noticed they put it on scrolled piping right onto the cake tiers! Would someone really remove all that scrollwork before eating? I could see removing bows and other big embellishments, but it seems tedious to have to remove little painted decorations before eating...
