Booklets containing edible silver leaf (E174) interleaved with tissue paper. The leaf can be gently topped out of the book and directly onto the food item but if more control is required over the effect then a gilding brush can be used to pick up the leaf.
Silver leaf (E174) is a white, lustrous metal and is facing a resurgence in popularity as an edible food additive and decoration. Silver can be used to garnish a number of dishes, giving them a contemporary or even a futuristic appearance.
The leaf is incredibly thin and will adhere to any moist surface and take up the texture of the food beneath. Chocolate has it’s own moisture but if it is dry then mix a little sugar and water together and paint onto the surface before applying the leaf.
To apply to fondant, you first need to make your fondant tacky by applying steam. Carefully open up the booklet, first hold the bottom of the leaf against the bottom of the cake and slowly roll up the booklet softly pressing the leaf to the cake.Once the leaf is tuck, carefully pull the booklet away & use a soft brush to run over the sheet making sure it's stuck.
This Edible leaf has been manufactured specifically for the food industry. It adheres to strict safety standards & complies EU safety standards.
