What should I use to do the gold decoration and how do I pipe it on?  The cakes will be covered in buttercream.  Royal icing?  Buttercream?  Stencil?  Thanks for any help!

I use the gold spray, you buy it in a can and spray it in a small plastic shooter glass, then I use that as paint with a paint brush.

I read that the highlighter dust is not edible. But I have seen that gold foil 23-24kt are food safe. What is the difference?
