Okay, so I was not aware before watching SugarShack's Boxes and Bows DVD, that regular luster was non-toxic, but not considered edible. She mentions an edible luster dust, but I don't think she mentions a brand. Can someone point me to a brand and/or place to order.

I believe the only luster dust that is considered inedible is the highlighters (gold, silver). But the regular luster dusts are. I use the CK or the Sunflower and its fine. And I actually do use the highlighter's also. Unless its going to be something that their going to eat a lot of like the whole cake being gold, I dont think a small piped dot will make anyone sick. Right now, dragees are considered non-edible in places like CA. And I know Ive eaten them and not got sick and my daughters eat them and they dont get sick. I think the key is moderation.
But you can ask Sharon what she was used if your worried!

I'm not sure what you are reffering to since I don't have DVD yet. I remember seeing Sugarshack's blog where she posted her favorite online cake stores (I believe) and she mentioned that she gets FDA approved dust. The only FDA approved dusts I know are the "Crystal Colors". I also read that Platinum dust by GSA are also FDA approved. Check it out on globalsugarart, there are also other sites selling it too. I personally only use those types of dust since I prefer all my cake stuff FDA approved.

Heres a link to give you an idea of what I'm talking about:

highlighters are not edible, not made for food

regular petal and luster dusts are non toxic but not considered food grade.

the only FDA approved brand I know of is Crystal Colors made by Sugarpaste. ( check the supply list card in the DVD case)

available at www.sugarpaste.com and Global

the one i used on the blue bow was fairy blue

I am not familiar with those, but if it says FDA approved they should be good to go.

Well, I may just have to give them a try. Thanks so much, Sharon!
