The Uses Of 23 Karat Edible Gold

Recently 23 karat edible gold made headlines because of the promotion of the world’s most expensive cupcake, made from a range of high quality ingredients and wrapped in 23 karat edible gold. This is one of many products that have been unveiled recently that aim to decadent and luxurious, and are attached with a hefty price tag.

The thing is, you don’t have to pay this price tag to get impressive food. Instead edible gold can be purchased from many online stores, and you can apply this directly to your own creations. This gives you the chance to make something as impressive, if not more than the expensive creations of restaurants and companies. Furthermore, you have the ability to say that you made the item yourself.

An example I stumbled across recently was chocolate dipped strawberries with flakes of gold in the chocolate. Strawberries made in this way would make a very romantic gift, and some websites clearly thought so, because you can buy them online. I wouldn’t recommend it though, because you can make identical strawberries yourself at a fraction of the price.

The way that these strawberries are made is to use edible gold flakes. These are small pieces of real gold and are very thin. Because of this, they have no taste and almost no texture. This means that while they look fantastic, people don’t tend to notice the flakes when they are actually eating the strawberries, which is a good thing.

It’s also important to note that there are no risks associated with eating gold. Gold doesn’t participate in many chemical reactions, and it will not react with anything in your body. In fact, gold is essentially the same when it leaves your body as it was when it entered it. This means that even if you have strong allergies, you will not be affected by eating gold in any way.

While gold flakes are a very common type of 23 karat edible gold, another type is gold leaf, which is actual sheets of very thin gold. Gold leaf is harder to work with, but it can produce very effective results. Gold leaf is often used for decorating cakes, and if you follow the instructions on online sites, it is pretty easy to get used to. Finally, edible gold dust is also often used for food, and this is very simple to apply although you need to make sure that the dust you get is real gold.
