silver and gold gel

Cake making is my hobby. Will anybody tell me where can I get silver and gold gel color? Thank you very much.


I have a recipe for making gold and silver , let me dig it out this evening. I will post it as soon as I can

This is the recipe I’ve used with success:

Silver or gold for piping

2 teaspoons gold or silver luster dust
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
clear alcohol (like vodka or ever-clear or you may use lemon extract, but very sparingly as it dries differently)
1 teaspoons of clear piping gel

Mix the luster dust with powdered sugar, then add a few drops of alcohol to form a paste. Add piping gel a little at a time till you get the correct consistency for piping. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will last indefinitely.

Thanks for posting that recipe Debs- can’t wait to try it-


Thanks Deb for all the wonderful ideas. Sorry if this is too late for a response. Didn’t visit the site for a while. Take care.

Wow Debs. Cant wait to try that one!!! How often do I get asked to pipe in gold and silver. I usually try to change the customers mind so I dont have to paint royal icing. A much cheaper option…. Thanks.
