Painting with highliter dust mixed with vodka (or similar) will give you that metallic color BUT..... .it is NOT EDIBLE! It must be done on a decoration that can be removed and not consumed.
........Gold - 10 parts Lemon Yellow & 3 parts Orange & 1 part Christmas Red........
This will give you a golden/yellow b'cream but it will not be a metallic gold.
Hi kakeladi - I just checked my metallic silver PME lustre spray and it says it is edible food colouring to decorate and colour chooclate, sugar, cakes, biscuits, pralines etc....
I don't have the gold PME lustre spray to hand but would assume it is the same (checked the pearl, pink and glaze I have and they are the same). Is the PME spray different in the US? Are the UK ones different?
I also have Rainbow Dust's gold metallic food paint which is 100% edible. It is even kosher, halal, GM free, nut free, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.
Am I missing something about these products??
