It could be edible silver leaf, such as:

There may be cheaper sources.

That really looks like silver leaf. I would go that route. It is also probably the most cost effective. Although, try to get the cake as smooth as possible. Imperfections show. Also, when working with leaf, no fans. Turn off central air so it doesn't kick on. It is incredibly delicate and will fly away on you. But it is fun to work with.
