Gold leaf - I need your help

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating


Hello my dear friends, can you help me with your opinion about covering a cake with edible gold leaf?
First of all I want your opinion if the base cake from the image is covered with gold leaf.
My second question is if you can cover a cake with edible gold leaf and have it look like the picture? I don’t see any joints (between possible gold leafs).
Thank you in advance for your help!
Have a great day!

I have no experience with gold leaf, Felis, but I wonder if that cake could just be covered with an edible image of sorts (transfer) where the image is totally gold colored. Just a thought…

I saw some video and some products from suppliers! The results are different! The gold leaf already has wrinkles, before using it and result can’t be so perfect!
I tried with gold dust in this morning and the result is better. I will put here 2 imagines, maybe is useful for somebody.

With much more light reflected on the cake, the result can be much more shiny!
