is there such a thing as metalic edible ink? I have a logo with gold on it but it doesn't look gold when I print - and ideas? THanks!

Someone suggested to me (but I haven't tried it yet): luster dust mixed with piping gel.

I think you might want to try to explain (if I understand correctly form your sentence) that you want to use this "metallic edible ink" on the printer?

Otherwise, people might come up with suggestions like shanter's, which is what people use. I'm not sure you can put that in your printer.

I think you'll have to add the metallic gold AFTER the image is printed

There is no metalic ink, but adding luster after it prints will give it a nice metalic look.

Yes, I should have said to paint it on after printing.
