  1. I realize that adorning desserts with gold dust / sheets makes them look so decadent, but what is the point? This will not contribute to flavour, and so ultimately to pleasure, in any way. Such a waste of money. I mean - would you buy these, even if you could comfortably afford them?

  2. Absolutely not! There's nothing long lasting about it. There was a time in my life where I wasn't very conscious about how I spent my money but even then I wouldn't use my hard earned cash on something that would literally end up in the toilet ;)

  3. I agree. There's so many wonderful things in life I could spend that money in...but not on any kinda food, caz it'll end up in the toilet, as you perfectly put it.
    Thank you for your visit, so glad you liked my stained glass skylight.
