Shine* ON

The Golden Cakes created by Sweetapolita are so unique, aren't they?
I'm pretty sure they taste delicious too ~YUM!
For centuries, gold has been used to decorate culinary creations for 
its aesthetic, symbolic power and also for its alleged magical properties...
.
We can certainly decorate almost anything with Edible Gold these days!
[ here are the shops where we can get them : for sprinkling/dusting/spraying/leafing ]

I want to buy some of this gold spray to jazz up some of my culinary creations!! It could become addicting, though. I can just imagine myself spraying sandwiches and things! :)

Oh yum! Talk about decadent. When we go to Paris together we will carry spray cans with us and spray all our food gold. Ah- Americans!
