Can anyone out there tell me where I can get the candy balls (gold, silver, and or white)? You know the ones that people put on the corners of there quilting patterns they put on the sides of cakes. WOW I really am having a hard time with this one. You used to get them in the store but they dont sell them anymore. If I am making any sense at all to you and you can help me out I would be grateful.
They are called dragees. If you are in California, they are banned.
If not, there are many online stores that sell them, just search dragee
Thank you JoAnnB so very much. I live in Mi so I guess they are not banned here and I will look online for them. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!
Hello! I live in Southern California and I just bought silver dragees for a princess cake. They had all sizes and shapes. (gold and silver) The shop is called ABC Cakes. They are located in Orange, CA . I never heard of a ban on them before. That's new to me! They have a website: ABCcakes.com Maybe they can ship some to you. I hope this helps!
They are not banned in california. There is some guy up north who is convinced that they will eventually kill you if you eat them. So he goes after every store in california who sells them (party pooper). There is a post somewhere on here with the whole story.
There is a great store in MI called Bakers nook. I am not sure where you are in location to it, but they sell Dragees and I have bought them there. They have a web site as well that you can order from.
oops...... double post!
Here is the link to a discussion about dragees. It gives a link to the story about the dragees hater in California.
Thank you all so much for your help!! ALOT!!
Is is true that the metallic gold & silver are not edible?
omg, the 'dragee hater' - I just laughed out loud!
The local mega-craft store in my city removed dragees from the shelves, saying that they were not meant to be eaten. The coatings are not considered edible.
