I see so many beautiful cupcakes with gorgeous little gumpaste figurines as decoration..but my question is this..
Do you serve them with the decorations? I mean, they're "edible" but I don't think you really want a kid eating them. So what do u do??

good question.....curious as to what others do. I tend to tell them that yes, they are edible, but you wouldn't really want to eat them.

I tell the customer to remove them before they are eaten.

Actually I htink most of those decorations are probably fondant which are easier to eat. GP will soften some once on b'cream but will still be crunchy. Serve them!

I can see serving a small fondant flower for example..but I'm really wondering about all the elaborate ones I see on here and flickr. Teacups, animals, etc. Gorgeous, but I would think they are made with gumpaste and very hard. I would hate to give a beautiful cupcake to a kid and have to say, oh, no..gotta take that!
