How do you tell if something is food safe?
I just decorate as a hobby, and I usually buy the little "tubs" of food color that you are suppose to stick a tooth pick in. I just think this is a pain. I know I can buy americolor in little squeeze bottles, but the store I can get them from is about 30 minutes away, and don't always have every color.
Of course some colors I can by in the 3oz bottles, but not everything. And sometimes I wanna test the color before buying a bigger bottle.
So I did some online looking and I found some bottles on ebay that I wouldn't mind using. I know some of you will say it is a pain, but I would rahter spend time and transfer than do the toothpick method again! Plus the tubs leak and I travel with them frequently!
Here is the link, it says it is LDPE plastic...
Or does anyone else know where I can get food safe 1 oz bottles I can squeeze?
Okay, I feel dumb, I should have done more research ( I usuallt do!) before posting... but I still wonder how to determine if something is food safe..
here is another site:
LOL, what an arduous task.
I just went online and bought every color of Americolor in the small bottles, along with a couple of big bottles of frequently used colors. That will only take you about 15 minutes, and then you'll have everything you need in a squeeze bottle, with the additional benefit of the higher quality that Americolor offers over Wilton.
*Shrugs* Happy hunting!
Cakepro... in the nicest way... you are a smart .....lets say cookie
I don't know why I didn't think of that. If I buy every color form my cake shop it would be $80 bux... hmm. found a site online that would make it $50. plus shipping.
How much were yours?
I guess I can find a few bottles for my old stuff. And just buy the americolor.
uhh I feel dumb!
Don't feel dumb! It would be a great idea if you didn't have the means to buy a whole new set of Americolors in squeeze bottles.
I think you're getting a great deal! If I recall correctly, I paid 99 cents a bottle. I bought them from the Cake Central store before it went belly-up. At my local cake shop, they would be nearly 2 bucks a bottle, plus tax.
Into The Oven has them for $1.17 per bottle: http://www.intotheoven.com/Cake-Essentials-Food-Colors-.75-oz/c46_47_48/index.html
Happy online shopping!
1.17 is what it costs through an ebay store I found as well.
dang my xmas list keeps getting longer and longer~~
I dont think i do enough cakes to justify buying all the colors at once...
I do need to get a "starter" kit for my new airbrush tho....
Thanks again for the wonderful suggestion
i'm still saying.. doh!
Just bought 12 AB colors at cake shop for 14.99... 1.25 each.. saved about .50 a bottle.
The americolo .75 oz. ones
Saving up for the others
