I would make a white chocolate ganache to use as the drip and then once it has set, paint over it with gold luster dust mixed with alcohol.

Yep, that's the way to do it............but standard "gold luster dust" isn't edible, so make sure that what you use IS edible by reading the ingredients on the label and being certain that it doesn't say "non toxic" or "for decoration only".

Roxy and Rich has lovely, edible gold dusts.

K8, their products are gorgeous.  They are very upfront about their ingredients and which products are edible in the US.  They have a few things that aren't US approved, but they clearly mark those and show their alternatives.
