Well, as the title says, I’d like to have a gold wedding cake! However, I’ve read multiple places that gold isn’t edible. But there is one that I found! http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=1DBDAB2F-F9DC-CF50-E14A8F834961CC9B#.UyDzyfldUz0
Has anyone had any experience? From pictures I’ve seen, it almost looks yellow. But I’m hoping someone has had experience with it actually being gold.
This is what I’m wanting the basic cake to look like. I’m planning on a 3 tier walmart cake, and I have no problem doing to gold myself.

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.)

Sorry, I should have said specifically.. it’s usually non – toxic, but still not supposed to be eaten in large amounts. All of them are told to scrape the frosting off most of the way before eating. I just think it would be .. tacky to ask guests to do that. I want them to be able to eat it!

Have you asked your baker if the guests can eat the gold? I know it’s non toxic but almost every baker we’ve talked to says they should still scrape it off because it’s not meant to be eaten in large amounts. I really don’t want our guests to have to do that. Plus, we’re getting our cake from a grocery store, just regular buttercream, and doing the gold ourslves. We’re on a very small budget.

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.

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.
