24k Edible gold leaf (transfer). It was made exclusively for the food industry. Edible gold leaf is suitable for decorating cakes and dishes of all kinds. It is ideal for embellishing and lighting your table on any occasion, from the morning flat white to the special event dish.

Our edible gold leaf contains no chemicals, vegetal extracts, anti-oxidants, bio-additives, preservatives, or chelating agents.

The individual gold leafs are pressed onto tissue paper. The tissue paper is larger than the gold leaf, so it is more easily handled. The transfer leafs can also be cut into desired shapes/forms with scissors. The leafs are placed onto the cake surface and carefully rubbed with the Application Brush (not included). The tissue paper may then be removed, as the gold leaf will adhere to the surface.

  • Leaf size: 80x80mm.
  • Inside the booklet, there are 5 leafs.

How do you apply edible gold leaf to a cake?

  • Always avoid touching gold leafs with your fingers.
  • Make sure your cake is free of powder so the edible gold leaf can stick.
  • If the surface of the cake is wet or moist already, then that’s best for loose leaf; if it is dry and hard (such as a biscuit), brush a thin layer of water over the area where you will apply the gold leaf using a food paintbrush.
  • For loose gold leaf, use the Edible Leaf Application Brush to pick it up and place it precisely where you want on the cake; the Gilder’s Tip is perfect for applying gold leaf vertically, such as on the cake’s outside walls.
