This is hands down, the best gold powder we've found! But check out how beautifully it mixes with our other metallic Powders to make 6 different timeless metallic accent colors from champagne to copper and everything in between. These three powders are a must have! Product of Italy, manufactured for use in culinary, 28.3 grams (1oz.) will last a long time in any decorator's kitchen! As with any Metallic Lusters, this is not regulated by the FDA as a food product. Any area of the cake which is decorated with these powders should be removed prior to serving (gumpaste flowers, molded fondant, etc). They are however non-toxic, beautiful and safe to use in close proximity to anything that will be eaten. If you're wondering how we decorate the side of a cake and remove the gold or silver powder see our FAQ section for more info. Best when mixed with vodka or lemon extract to create a paint. Then brush it onto your decoration, or thin slightly more and run it through an airbrush.
