In case you haven’t noticed, metallics are huge.. like GODZILLA huge! Gold and silver is everywhere in cake trends and I forsee it only getting bigger before it gets smaller. This brings up a really important topic. How are people getting these gold colors so bright and are they edible, as in actually food grade?
I’ve put together a pretty simple review on some of the top metallic food colors on the market right now and have taken the guesswork out for you. That’s my job, making things easy for you, my lovely followers. ((GROUP HUG!))
I’ve gathered colors that are from the US as well as the UK and AU. So the color you end up using might have to be special ordered so think ahead when you need a metallic. Don’t leave it to the last minute. The great thing is metallics go a REALLY long way so you can order a few containers and it should last you quite a while. You can also ask your cake friends if they need any metallics so you can put in a bulk order and split the shipping.
Here is the video on the metallic food color review. All the links to the colors are below the video. Enjoy and please share so we can spread the word on EDIBLE, SAFE, BEAUTIFUL metallic food colors for our cakes.[responsive-box][/responsive-box]
