*To use gold sheets:
Avoid touching edible gold leaf with your hands or fingers, as it will stick. Do not breath directly on your gold leaf because it will blow away or wrinkle up. Using a paring knife, tweezers, or a razor, cut away the portion of the gold sheet that you wish to use. Pick up the piece of gold using just the tip of your knife or tool and gently touch the item you are applying the gold leaf to; it should stick, as it applies very easily to surfaces.
