Perhaps the only thing more covetable than gold itself are gold-leafed foods. These lavish, pricey plates are stunning, and most importantly, their real golden flakes are often edible.
Edible gold leaf is measured as if it were traditional gold -- in karats. Most edible gold that often tops candy, cakes or ice cream, comes in at around 23- or 24-karats and can be wildly expensive.
According to Gold Gourmet, leaves of edible gold are tasteless, not surprising as they are only around 1/8,000mm thin. And, no matter how decadent the dish, these gilded embellishments are calorie-free.
