    Default Edible gold leaf

    Please note these ads will not show for registered crafts forum members.

    I'm doing some foody Christmas presents and would like to put gold leaf on some biscuits that I going to be making. Where is the best place to get this - supermarkets don't seem to sell it. Also, I was wondering if there are any other edible 'metals' such as sliver leaf maybe.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Have you tried using 'petal dust glitters' or food colourings that you can buy from cake decorating shops/suppliers?

    Would be a lot cheaper than gold leaf but obviously not nearly as indulgent.

    Found a link for the real thing:
