I am considering using this on top of fondant letters to give a gold sheen. is it any good? I couldn't really find any good info on it in doing a search.

I don't need them to be a dense dark gold, but I would like it to show up at least some and give a nice sparkly sheen.

In the alternative, would i be better off using a gold spray, like from Chefmaster or PME?

I need the letters to still be edible.

I think I still have some in my drawer. Don't expect it to act like you assume it will. You will need at least three coats and it takes FOREVER to dry. Better to use gold luster mixed with vodka. It still may take three coats to get what you want, but it dries quick.

But luster isn't edible,correct? I need to make sure that if anyone eats the letters, there will be no problems.

Or am I confusing luster with Disco dust? I am very confused by what is food grade edible. And not just safe in that well-it-won"t-kill-you type of way.

Don't know where you live (US?) but there is a great UK product advertised as 'new' but it has been on the market for some time: Metallic Food Paint by Rainbow - Metallic Light Gold and Silver

Rainbow Dust (the Sparkle Range) itself is not edible, but this product has nothing to do with it, it's 100 % edible. Even one coat is acceptable, I usually use two. It dries very quickly. I used both on some of the cakes in my gallery (bird cage and elephant). There will be surely something similar in the US. It's nut free, GM Free, gluten free, suitable for vegetarians, Kosher & Halal.

I think luster dust is edible but disco dust is not (it won't kill you, but it is not recommended for consumption).

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong. icon_smile.gif
