They may have used this special pan and then covered them in edible gold paint.

The best place to buy Oreo molds is SpinningLeaf, IMO. Check out all their products on-line. Love them! I have the mold they used to make the ones in your photo. As texasmom said, it would then have to be covered with edible paint (there's a spray that would be ideal).

You know of an edible spray that produces a finish like that photo?

AWould gold airbrush color not produce that look?

No, airbrushing only gets you so much gleam, and I'm actually betting that is not an edible finish.

those look like plastic hockey pucks, very Pretty shiny ones, but Not appetizing.

They just don't look like chocolate covered Oreos, which are very appetizing.

I've seen the Chefmaster brand of edible metallic food sprays, and the reviews seem pretty good. But I've never used them myself.

As far as I know the only edible spray that gives that shine is a product called Esslack from Germany.  I don't think it's available in the states but if someone finds it let me know.

I have a can of Chefmaster and I don't think it is that great.  Maybe I got a bum can, though.  It smells sweet, like it has sugar in it, tastes terrible wet (that goes away when it dries), and leaves a discernible layer of thickness on what you spray.  I don't think it is nearly as shiny as the German spray.  Luster dust would be more reflective.

I used "Duff Goldman" gold air brush color but I did not get the gold color I was looking for. So I mixed some orange and yellow into it and actually got the color I was looking for.  But I brushed the color on I did not spray it on.

AThose appear to be done with the disco dust brushed onto the chocolate that has been wet with water. I found some videos on You Tube to show how to do it.

In this video the person wets the chocolate, then brushes disco dust onto the chocolate. All the glitter falls off, so I wonder if disco dust has luster dust mixed in with the glitter. Perhaps it is better to use the wet method with the luster dust. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ0xcd2bzBY&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Here is another one that uses disco dust and water. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHBa68AZ8Bo&feature=youtube_gdata_player

(Personally, I would not want to consume disco dust, so I would probably try the luster dust, though maybe that is not much safer.)

This person just dry brushes luster dust directly onto the chocolate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mmHvlxR-r0&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Here is the mold for the cookies. http://shop.spinningleaf.com/Standard-Cookie-Mold-p/ck-2015.htm

Here is a mini sized mold. http://shop.spinningleaf.com/Standard-Mini-Cookie-Mold-p/mck-1.htm

SecretAgentCakeBaker Posted 16 Nov 2013 , 6:49am

AI just watched the second video again, this time to the end. She also shows using luster dust with water and it looks pretty good.

texas_mom Posted 17 Nov 2013 , 12:34am

I have always heard that Pixy Dust and Disco Dust are not edible and that it says so on the label...does anyone know if this is true ?

You betcha. The only difference between disco and the glitter you buy at a hobby shop is that disco is just cut finer. Same plastic glitter, just thinner.

morganchampagne Posted 17 Nov 2013 , 5:53am

AIt's so scary because I bought a jar of that stuff at the cake decorating store assuming it was edible. I mean it was in the cake store after all!! Luckily I had seen a post about it here before I gave it to a customer

Godot Posted 17 Nov 2013 , 6:42am

AI bought floristry wire and tape at the cake decorating store. Should I then assume that it was edible? I mean , it was in the cake store after all!

I, as a consumer, have a responsibility to actually READ the label and find out for myself what is edible vs non-toxic.

morganchampagne Posted 17 Nov 2013 , 6:54am

ARight. I didnt say tht it was anybody elses fault but mine. I was just saying my thought process.

morganchampagne: I've seen several photos on the internet where cakepops, cupcakes, and cookies are generously coated with the stuff.......yet it's not supposed to be eaten.

 

Labeled Non-Toxic.  If it's just shaved plastic or something else that is supposed to go through your gastric system, well you are probably smart to stay on the safe side.  Your cakes are lovely, nicely decorated and well designed.  They don't need plastic sprinkles IMO.

morganchampagne Posted 17 Nov 2013 , 8:23am

AThanks!!!! This wasnt recent when I bought this though. This was about a year ago when I first started taking decorating seriously and I didnt know anything about anything lol

It's a relatively dull finish just like any metallic airbrush sprays.

Have you actually used it or just seen the ads? I've seen ads Chefmaster spray that looked just like that photo, too and it's misleading.

howsweet Posted 17 Nov 2013 , 6:43pm

I also talked to a company who sells edible real gold spray. When pressed for info about what it looks like sprayed, they said it wasn't very shiny.  If I wanted shiny, they said I should by their gold leaf.

JWinslow Posted 17 Nov 2013 , 6:49pm

I contacted "O" Pops by Angie but I am not optimistic about an answer because they don't reply to anyone on their FB page.  I let you know if anyone messages me back.

No, I haven't used the one from Germany - it's not available in the states due to shipping regulations.  If you Google Esslack (purchase) what comes up for the States is Amazon and they show ChefMaster and other spray.

Is this true of the sprays as well? I don't use any of the above-mentioned products, but I've been tempted! They don't even sell the silver and gold dragees at the hobby store by my house because of edibility concerns.

Guys, if Play-Doh is cheaper than the fondant I use, I'm just going to use that instead.  If it's safe enough for kids to eat, it's safe enough for friends and family!  Plus, they have SO many colors, even some fun ones with glitter.  Cake decorating just got so much more awesomer.

Smile, giggle, snort :-D

Brooks321 Posted 20 Nov 2013 , 10:23pm

this is very similar to using a spray coating

Annabakescakes Posted 21 Nov 2013 , 1:14am

AThose look incredibly unappealing to me. Not like food at all. I am officially over the "bling" look and these "cookies" are solely responsible.
