Using a convenient gold shaker, you can easily sprinkle the gold flakes on your creations. To save you some time searching for a suitable shaker, we offer two popular flake shakers in our store.
The Shaker for flakes made of stainless steel is ideal for evenly distributing gold leaf flakes over starters, main courses and desserts due to its many holes.
Tip: Sprinkle the gold flakes as close to the food surface as possible to avoid excessive flying of the flakes.
The glass shaker for flakes and dust has holes in different sizes. This gives you the opportunity to decorate delicious bites very precisely with real gold flakes.
The fewer holes your shaker has, the more precisely and efficiently you can apply the flakes to the food surface.
