Slofoodgroup Team August 07, 2020

Gold is such a beautiful color. It’s incredibly vibrant, and it catches people’s attention the minute they see it. Since the color is so popular, those in the baking industry took it upon themselves to develop edible gold leaf. This piece will discuss the top ways to use edible gold leaf. Some of the methods may surprise you.

Baking

Edible gold is used most often in baking, as it can add a beautiful and unique touch to any dish that a baker creates. There are multiple varieties of edible gold that baking enthusiasts should consider using. For example, one can sprinkle loose-leaf edible gold on top of cupcakes, cakes, pies, or cookies to add elegance or fit with a theme. More skilled bakers, on the other hand, can use sheets of edible gold to layer an entire cake. The great thing about edible gold is that it looks terrific no matter what medium you use.

Drink Ornamentation

There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a refreshing cocktail every once in a while. Bars, restaurants, and even individuals can make their drinks even more special by adding stunning drink ornamentation to their glasses. Why not spice up Taco Tuesdays by placing some gold around the rim of a margarita glass? Another option is to decorate the outside of a champagne flute to make a toast even more memorable. Whichever way you decide to decorate your cup, make sure to snap a photo of your beverage to get plenty of likes.
