Hello everyone. I've used a lot of gold on my cakes but I'm not too crazy with the gold colour I use...always looks dark. I need a bright gold that is closed to the gold leaf colours but dust. Something like these pictures. Anyone have an idea of the name of gold I can use? Thank you.

Lizzo Marek of sugar geeks did a tutorial on the different types / brands of gold. Give it a look.
If the tutorial being referred to is the one from 2014, it's woefully out of date. It still lists Rolkem dusts as "awaiting US FDA approval"--something they could never get in a million years. Sadly, there are also some newer products as well that are hawked as "edible, FDA approved" and they're not.
If you're in the US, you need to use a product with FDA certified colors in them. Roxy & Rich [roxyandrich.com] has several beautiful golds in their Hybrid Luster & Sparkle lines [not highlighters, as they're never edible].
