Made in the USA
Founded in 1929, Wilton started off as a cake-decorating school that offered specialty tools and helped bring European-style decorating into the American mainstream. Illinois-based Wilton has since grown into an international source of premium bakeware and accessories.
I bought Wilton Gold Pearl Decorating Dust to dress up some molded homemade cookies (I first saw the idea in one of my many baking books). To apply, paint decorations by pouring a small amount of clear vanilla, lemon juice or vodka into a candy melting plate cavity, stir in dust and brush your mixture onto decorations using a soft artist brush. Using vodka results in a slightly deeper color once mixed, so you may want to experiment before brushing it on your final dessert.
Wilton Pearl Decorating Dust will create a beautiful accent on cookies (particularly springerle or other molded cookies), or by just glazing a walnut or single accent on top of a cookie or dessert. Pearl Dust is also amazing for painting fondant (especially flowers or other accents like ribbons). Also, a little goes a long way, so start with a small amount and add more as necessary when mixing. Make sure to give the pearl dust time to dry / set before serving your final dessert. Have fun and experiment; your dessert will go from ""yum"" to ""wow""!

It's possible, but because of the type of top on the container, you would have to be careful that the gold dust didn't come out in clumps or pour on unevenly (you might have better luck using a small sieve or sifter as it's hard to achieve precise control with an open-topped container)
