Edible Gold Flakes For Cakes And More...

Just like with edible gold leaf, edible gold leaf flakes are a type of gold. These will be used within a culinary context. These are used for food decoration with the shining lustre of real gold whilst still being suitable for oral consumption. However, instead of being a thin sheet of gold covering a whole surface, these will be small pieces. Often they will then often be sprinkled atop a piece of food in a more scattered area.
The beauty of this form of decoration is that the gold flakes will work perfectly well as a garnish to decorate both savoury dishes and desserts. Most commonly food such as cupcakea or a wedding cake, along with chocolates are a popular option. As are alcoholic cocktails. Additionally, many people will also use them to decorate glasses and crockery for a particularly extravagant meal.
Whether gold flakes can be considered worth buying is something of a subjective viewpoint. These will be small quantities of genuine and very pure gold flakes that will be used primarily for decoration. As such, if you value such things they will definitely be worth purchasing as nothing provides the same lustre as genuine highly pure gold.

Information About Edible Gold Flakes

When it comes to determining whether some gold flake or gold leaf is edible, the primary way of doing so is to determine the purity quality of the gold. The reason for this being that pure gold is biologically innert. This means that the gold will not react inside your body and simply harmlessly pass through your digestive system. Therefore, they also pure gold doesn't have any taste but does have a notably crunchy texture. However, less pure examples of gold will not necessarily be safe as the impurities within such gold such as zinc copper, iron or silver can be toxic in higher quantities (although edible silver does also exist).
Our edible gold flake selection, just like that of our edible gold sheets will come in purity of 23.75 karats. This edible gold being being comprised of 99% gold and 1% silver. Each of our products will come in a jar or container with there being two distinct types. One of which is intended for general use as a garnish whilst the the other is used for drinks.

How To Use Edible Gold Flakes?

When it comes to using edible gold flakes, the process is incredibly simple. Doing so, simply involves sprinkling some of the gold flakes over the desired dish or carefully place them in a more precise way if desired. That said though, you should refrain from doing so with your hands and instead use some sort of brush and an anti-static tweezers such as those made from bamboo or carefully coated steel tweezers.
The reason for this is that the gold flakes themselves are very thin and delicate. As such you should avoid handling them with your fingers and bare skin or exposing them to steam or humidity.

    Guilding project completed with this product.

    Nice product! Would order again

  3. John C.

    I actually put this in a hole in my wood slab dining room table project. I poured clear expoxy on top to seal it in.

  4. F.Y.H

    It was not a full jar… it wasn’t packed like you’d expect a jar of sprinkles to be packed, but there were a lot of similar reviews addressing this. Don’t know if this is normal or not as this is the first time I’ve ever purchased gold leaf flakes. It was very beautiful though. I was decorating chocolate covered treats (I decorated about 4 dozen Oreos and still have more than half left) and I recommend using the tweezers and applying onto a wet/semi dry surface. If it’s dry it won’t really stick. It’s also very thin, but surprisingly it takes a lot of effort to tear into smaller pieces.

    This was the first time I’ve ever used this product. I’m not a professional baker at all but this product helped my cake look great. My only complaint is the price especially how little there was in the container.

  6. SamFromTX

    Obviously, they are tasteless and are meant as a decoration for foods. You can pu on dessert, chocolate ice cream, foie gras, whatever you want. You have to be careful and never handle them by hand, just the tweezers. Very thin and if handled by hand, will sic to fingers and get messed up. Will buy again.

    Very nice product, Just not enough of it. First time buying edible gold so idk if this is just what you get for the money…but definitely not enough for 2 dozen cupcakes..Maybe 1 Dozen used sparingly. Purchased larger size loose gold.

  9. Dana R. Stewart

    This was added to my cheesecakes and my cupcakes. It made the presentation look so beautiful.

  10. Erb

    I used the flakes for a little bling on the cake. Theme was pink and gold, so this was perfect. Not the easiest thing, but I followed suggestions in the reviews, and it was fine. I used the wooden tongs, and a small brush. Once I got them placed on the cake, I wash and dried my hands really well, and very, very gently used the heat of my fingers to smooth the pieces down really well. I have ever tried the sheets before, because truthfully, it seemed a bit intimidating. But I might have to give them a try, the next time someone requests gold or silver. Extremely pretty.
