one of these would do it -- there's a smaller size that would also be enough but this size is more economical

and of course you would line them all up and spray them all at once in a group and just turn the group of cupcakes around and around to get all sides -- don't spray them individually -- i would recommend going with a brighter color underneath like a golden yellow --

while they are in this grouping -- protect the perimeter cupcake wrappers with paper towels or parchment to deflect the spray -- you don't want the guests to get gold paint on their fingers at the event --

best to you
