More often than not, we think of gold as something we wear. But for centuries, dating back to ancient Egypt, it’s also been something we eat. (The Egyptians believed gold was sacred food.) And more recently, we’ve seen more bling than ever popping up on our plates around the globe. Gold on desserts was a lot bigger in the late ’90s and early 2000s. Just like fashion trends, you can run the risk of your desserts looking dated, but since it’s made its way back, it’s my favourite edible accent decor!”
What is edible gold, exactly? It is a nontoxic, pure form of gold beaten to 0.057 microns sheets, which is odourless and tasteless Classically, it is used as a garnish or topping for dessert concoctions. These days, it seems chefs are focused on much less opulent, more refined versions.
Even mass-producers are hopping on board the gilded trend when Nestles made a splash in the headlines when it announced its fanciest Kit Kat ever—a limited-edition (there will be only 500 made), £10.50 chocolate bar covered in pure gold.
This Fabergé Egg was originally created for the Russian Imperial family. Tsar Alexander III started the tradition,as the story is told by wanting to get something for his wife to celebrate their anniversary, which was close to the Easter holiday. He wanted a really nice egg, to be intricately decorated, and to have a surprise in the centre. This started the tradition of the Fabergé Egg, which the company (Fabergé) had only created 50 in 32 years, and only the affluent could afford them.
Many bakers make cakes that look similar to Fabergé eggs, but none as expensive as the Fabergé Egg cake that was delivered to a diamond mogul.Carl Weininger, in Great Britain, for his 60th birthday. He bought the cake himself, since he had recently broken up with his girlfriend and thought that it would cheer him up.
Even though the cake isn’t customarily made just like a Fabergé Egg as it doesn’t open, it does have several layers, including champagne jelly, biscuit joconde, dark chocolate and topped with 24ct edible gold leaf by Connoisseur Gold.
I think the 2 carat diamond which sits on top of the chocolate flower, should be the Easter surprise every girl should receive!!!
