I’m pretty sure there is edible gold.  I think its rather pricey though and I don’t know how it tastes. These probably aren’t the real gold foil but I know I have seen it in magazines on cakes and in cocktails.

You can definitely get edible gold for cakes, we are having some on our cake (just accents of it, not a whole tier gold but I have seen that done before too.)

Josheen:  If you’re worried about the edible-ness of the gold, why don’t you do a gold cake stand instead, to bring in the gold element?

That gold mist spray won’t give you the look you want anyway.

pinkksnow:  Gold is edible (ever bought a bottle of Goldschlager with the gold flakes in it?)  The reason why many bakers shy away from it is supposedly because when cut gold colored fondant looks unappetizing.

This is the real gold foil.  Not spray, not dust, not paint.
