Acetate plastic can be used in baking, cooking or food preparation in many ways, mainly for the decoration/plating element of the process. For example, temper chocolate and use Acetate Sheet to create amazing shapes for plating (a tunnel, disc or lace), which according to this temperaholic creates a far superior shine than when the chocolate is set on other surfaces.

Acetate Plastic can also be placed inside your baking tin or food stacker for the easy removal of set desserts; it's one of Christina Tossi's listed essential ingredients in the Momofuku Milk Bar Cookbook for this reason.
