Sparkly edible gold elevates any dish to the peak of extravagance. 



  • Room temperature cream cheese
  • Spirulina powder
  • Chlorophyll drops
  • Edible gold leaf
  • Candycane beets
  • Orange bell pepper
  • Toast
  • Butter knife
  • Tiny star shaped cookie cutters


  1. Spread an even layer of plain cream cheese over the toast.
  2. Split the remaining cream cheese into two bowls. Add spirulina powder to one bowl, and chlorophyll drops to the other. Mix until you achieve your desired shade of blue and green respectively.
  3. Add dollops of the coloured cream cheese to the toast, and gently swirl around with a butter knife to create desired effect.
  4. Slice the beets and peppers thinly, and use the cookie cutter to cut out star shapes.
  5. To garnish, sprinkle some spirulina powder over the top, add gold leaf, and garnish with stars towards the bottom of the toast to represent starfish on the seabed. Enjoy!
