I actually have to make a cake soon that has a gold metallic look to it.  I purchased Duff's gold spray from Michaels and tried it on a buttercream cake.  It was pretty with a nice metallic shine to it but I found it to be too yellow and not a true gold that I was looking for.  I ordered and just received a metallic spray from Americolor.  I haven't used it on a cake yet buy I sprayed it on a paper towel and the color is more the gold I am looking for.  Hope this helps.  I...
