AZCouture: makes perfect sense. (as per usual)

 

I can't stand the thought of putting  metal leaf   in my mouth.........Haven't you guys ever bit into a piece of foil coated hamburger wrapper and had that screaming shock of foil between your teeth. 

 

kmcgee404:     The cake is definitely Stunning looking

found it

 

 

the cookie

 

 

the cookie with the leaf on it and a shot of the book with the 

silver's that's left after applying to cookie

 

 

so there's less than zero mouth/tooth/tongue feel

it's just like eating the plain cookie--even if i put the

leaf directly on my tongue--nothing

Looks great!  Can't wait to try it, don't know why I never thought of putting it straight on SMBC.

I like the effect that you got with the silver leaf.  Nice job!  Time to go experiment :smile:

I started thinking about how incredible the silver leaf would look on tool boxes, belt buckles, tool handles, you know guy stuff, cars, wheels.    outdoorsy things.
