Is there any place cheaper than Fancy Flours to buy them? I was thinking of putting them on my treasure chest cake for a kids party but the price was outrageous! My other concern would be choking are they very hard? There are going to be lots of kids at the party so....
Has anyone ever put the craft ones on? I could just tell the mother they are non-edible.

My girlfriend bought some from England but they are high maintenance. I've tried to make them and it's just a hot sticky mess. I wasn't totally invested in it though. I did make a few but next time I think I'll try the crushed candy method. I've heard isomalt is easier to work with--also hot and sticky--my molds are very small though. They dull less with isomalt is what I've heard.

However--please, I urgently recommend that you do not use anything like that that is small and non-edible on any cake ever. I mean it is a certifiable health hazard.
