Just out of curiosity I need to verify this. A friend who also is into cake decorating was telling me I would be able to use non-toxic chalks in place of luster dust or petal dust. How true is this? What exactly are these powders made up of? I read somewhere they where ground up pastels icon_surprised.gif Can this be done? icon_confused.gif

Some people use them for flowers that are on competition cakes. The chalks are non-toxic, but that doesn't mean they should be eaten or put on a real cake. Of course, this is my personal, and easily grossed out opinion. icon_smile.gif
