Details about Soft Press Edible Gold Transfer Sheets
Light Press Edible Gold Leaf Transfer Sheets, the perfect accent for cakes, pastries, and other culinary works of art
Light press transfer gold is a thinly-pounded gold leaf that is lightly attached to transfer leaf paper. Soft press 24 karat gold transfer sheets differ from hard press transfer sheets in that hard press transfer gold is firmly attached to transfer backing for application to larger surface areas, whereas soft press edible gold lifts easily from its book, is quite delicate, needs to be handled with care, and is better suited for culinary accenting.
Edible gold leaf, or gold sheet, as it is sometimes referred to is gold that has been hammered into flat sheets that are as thin as rice paper. Soft press edible gold is commonly used to add a feeling of elegance or luxury to a dish without fully encasing it.
24 karat edible gold leaf is odorless and tasteless. So it won't alter the dish beyond aesthetic appeal. Edible gold is "biologically inert" and perfectly safe to consume. It passes through the digestive tract and is not absorbed.
Soft press edible gold lends itself to both sweet or savory culinary projects. Our 24 karat gold transfer sheets are absolutely pure patent gold leaf. If you are shopping for edible gold flake they can be found here

Directions for using soft-press edible gold transfer sheets.
*To use gold leaf:
Avoid touching gold leaf with your hands or fingers. The oils on your skin contribute to the edible gold leaf sticking. Do not breath directly on any gold leaf or it will blow away and possibly take on a crinkle effect.
Use a pairing knife, tweezers, or razor to cut away the portion of the transfer 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 immediately stick to the item, as it applies very easily to surfaces.
