How is edible gold made?

To make edible gold leaf, pure gold is melted down. Our gold has to go through a series of steps before it is listed on our website. The basic steps are pouring, pounding, shaping, pressing, and more pounding. It is a lot of work but well worth it in the end. 

Gold sheets are commonly used to add an aesthetic elegance or feeling of luxury to a dish. As such, it frequently appears on desserts at events, but more recently gold leaf sheets have been spotted on everything from sushi and champagne to burgers and wings.

Why buy our edible gold leaf paper for cakes?

Edible gold is odorless and tasteless and considered "biologically inert” in higher karats. This edible food decoration is safe to eat and perfectly safe to ingest. Passing through the digestive tract without being absorbed, edible gold lends itself well to decorations of both sweet or savory cooking and baking. Edible gold is commonly found on wedding cakes or anniversary cakes.

Exactly what I needed

Bought this to use on my own wedding cake, and it was perfect! This was my first time working with gold leaf, but I made sure to read up on how to use it before trying. Pro tip: the gold blows away in the wind very very easily, even with your own breath. You can avoid this by holding your breath, but I found a better way: wear a face mask. It blocks the flow of the wind while still allowing you to breathe normally and take your time with the gold placement. Looks a little weird to wear a face mask in my own kitchen but hey, gotta do what ya gotta do.

Great for chocolate bonbons

We have tried many brands of gold leaf for decorating our chocolate bonbons here at chocolate+cashmere. This is by far the best. We make several hundred a week with the loose leaf sheets of gold leaf, and it always looks good.
