Does anyone know if this exists? Where you can buy it?

My husband is gearing up for his annual holiday pound cake bake off (give him a flavor and he'll bake it) for gifts.

I thought it'd be nice to wrap in colorful foil.

Otherwise, I'll just wrap in regular silver and decorate with frosty blue ribbons and bows.

I have heard that the Roswell community had once found colored aluminum foil but it came from a planet 200 light years from here. It's not very abundant.

There is colored foil wrapping paper, and colored clear foil - any giftstore
will have them, Target too.

Thank you zyanokz for that helpful information.

I know aluminum foil can be colored...I mean, look at Hersheys Kisses candy wrappers....red, blue, gold

Yeah, I thought about that...was trying to see if I could find it without the paper backing.

I guess I could wrap them in regular foil, then over wrap them in the colored paper aluminum foil.....THEN add the powder blue ribbons and bows!

I've seen cookies put into brown or white paperbags with a little
doily in gold up front and a red bow around. That looked so nice and
is a cheap wrapping too.

Something like this

We can get coloured plastic wrap pretty easily. I'd suspect coloured aluminum foil should be available from a baker's supply house. Of course, you might have to order a few miles of it.

Yea ehbeth, that would cover a few more pound cakes then'll be coming out of the oven. Very Happy

Actually, the more I think of it, the silver and blue would be good.

It would be like a rockin' retro christmas type of thing.

You might also think about some of the holiday metallic/foil wrapping paper that is around for the holidays. Would be a lot less expensive than a specialty foil too. You can probably find some that are a solid color with embossing if you don't want the artwork.
