Authentic Renaissance Baking Supplies

Some of the historical ingredients called for in Renaissance baking are Gum Arabic, Gum Tragacanth (Gum Dragon), Gum Paste, Rose Water, and Colored Sugar Crystals. Edible silver leaf and 23kt edible Gold Leaf or Gold Flakes are used in gilding authentic Renaissance and Medieval-style sweetmeats. These ingredients are rarely found in local stores nowadays, but they are available to you online from a trusted source.



Renaissance-Style Molds and Cutters

You'll find a good assortment of quality cookie cutters and candy molds in classic shapes for preparing marchpane (marzipan), sugar paste, leach, gingerbread, marmalet (marmalade), and other sweetmeats for presentation.

Popular shapes for sweetmeats in the Medieval and Renaissance Eras were heart, diamond, club, spade, crescent moon, walnut, acorn, egg, and various fruits.

The cut or molded sweetmeats were often colored with natural food dyes or decorated with colored sugars. They were sometimes gilded with edible 23kt gold or edible silver leaf for serving on special royal occasions.



Renaissance-Style Party Supplies

Few of us can boast of having a Renaissance banquet hall, but party decorations can help to lend ambience to your home dining room for the occasion. For example, a colorful pennant banner (10-inch x 12 feet) and a large Medieval-like tablecloth will display your Renaissance desserts perfectly.
