Sprinkle a Little Gold Dust to Sparkle Up Your Simplest Cakes

When you want to improve the appearance of a simple cake, an easy decorating technique is to use a little (or a lot) of edible gold dust.  This flourless chocolate cake is not very grand looking because it is only one-inch high, but it was ordered for a special occasion, so it needed to be fancied up a bit. 

With some flowers made out of dark chocolate toffee (the same toffee I use on my chocolate TOFFLE product - you can use chocolate fondant if you like), and a heavy sprinkling of gold dust, this cake changed from a simple, but rich chocolate cake, to something made for an important event in someone's life.

Simply search 'edible gold dust' on Google or your preferred search engine and you will likely find a website or retailer that sells it.  One site that I use in Canada is Golda's Kitchen - see here for the link to their gold dust product range.
