Edible gold is a food trend that is still reserved for those with deep pockets. But it’s one trend that is getting quite popular around the world. There are gold-plated ice-cream, gold-plated donuts and even gold-plated pizzas! People are getting a taste of gold leaves on a number of food items. Last year, Bollywood celebrity Shilpa Shetty Kundra had made news for trying out a gold-plated soft serve in Hong Kong. The diva posted a video of herself trying out the luxury dessert on her Instagram page and it got thousands of views and comments, as well as generated a lot of interest around the dessert itself. For those who are looking forward to trying the dessert with edible gold in it, now you don’t have to travel all the way to Hong Kong to try it- you can get it right here in India!
