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.

    I use gold flakes for garnishing desserts on special occasions. These gold flakes are the largest I have ever purchased. They make any dessert recipient feel extra special.

    I liked that the company included the wooden tweezers to pick up each flake to set on the cupcake. This made it easier.

    The flaked gold worked better for my dessert. I saved my sheets for another use. These were easy – I just grabbed pieces with my tweezers and the end result looked beautiful.

    My first time using real gold leaf or leafing of any kind. I loved this product and it had big flakes to work with. People should take head as to what they use to stick it on with and seal it. I found modgepodge worked well while wet to put this on bc there’s one they sell at hobby lobby and it just stayed tacky forever and the leafing came off even when sealed so that method just isn’t for me. Modgepodge while wet out this on and then let dry about 30 min then add the leafing sealer that hobby lobby sells it’s like a gloss finish . Not everything works for everyone just wanted to share what works for me.

    These flakes are dainty and lovely and a little adds a super lovely aura and whimsical touch to anything . I really enjoyed working with it. Oh and be careful to not work under a fan with it ! I really take care of it and save every bit. I was so happy it came with wooden tweezers not static problem. Great experience and came extremely fast with no issues at all. Thank you so so much for a lovely product . (I couldn’t find it anywhere where I lived!) highly recommend !! Can’t say it enough 🙂
