Cake Decorating Edible Silk Powder - 5g Metallic Light Gold 5 "dont let the photo put you off!" Miss Ward 25 February 2013 In the photo this looks yellow, but if you take a peek at the cupcake stencils you can see a truer guide to the gold colour You'll recieve, it's a nice bright gold. It is yellow toned but certainly nicer than shown in the photo! I did infact use this with the cupcake stencils and it turned out nice. I brushed it on, you can vary the finish with a little layering.. I have used a similar brand mixed with food safe alcohol, the downside is that it evaporates quickly, but doing it that way does give a shinier appearance, it depends on what finish you like. I'll be trying out the lilac next.
