I have used several brands and paints. I have yet to get those beautiful gold looks I see on others' cookies. Help, please.
Unfortunately, most of the super shiny metallics that you see are not food-grade, FDA-approved materials. They are usually labeled "non-toxic" or "not for consumption" or "for decorative use only". Please read labels before applying super shiny luster to products that will be consumed.
If you use in your icing powder sugar with corn starch use any metalic with everclear. They will be shine. (sorry my english)
