I have an event in a about week and a customer is requesting that I top some desserts with edible gold leaves. The customer requested for leaves like this: http://www.fancyflours.com/product/Edible-Gold-Leaf-Petals-150-mg-box/s
I keep looking at that picture trying to see the "leaves" or the "petals", but to me they kind of just look like randomly torn pieces. Anyone else think they actually look like they have a leaf shape?
You could buy sheets and just use the tweezers to tear it into pieces that look just like that.
They are just little torn pieces. They don't mean they are shaped like petals or leaves when they use that terminology. It's not possible to shape them into anything at all.
I represent the company (EasyLeafProducts.com) whose edible gold and edible silver products are sold at Fancy Flours. I wanted to say that I highly recommend you purchase the petals instead of leaves since your customer is asking for them. Leaves are typically used to cover an entire piece of food. The petals are much easier to work with and the bamboo tweezers make it super simple to place the petals exactly where you want them so that no product is lost in the decorating process. Please feel free to message me for any further questions: firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck!
