I just bought some confectioner's glaze and I was googling it and saw that some places that sell it say it's not edible and should be used for decorative purposes only. On the bottle it says it's food grade edible shellac. I also bought a bottle of thinner and that has acetone, so I'm guessing that if you thin it then it's not edible...

Does anyone know for sure?

Hi, I have used confectioner's glaze loads of times. Its is edible. I never thin it down. I use the glaze remover to clean my brush. If you are not sure, there is a recipe for Edible Varnish in the Recipe Index. You can use that. icon_smile.gif

I'm sure I've read from a UK site that it is edible when dry (I know that sounds odd - I think the nonedible thing evaporates and leaves the shine), but saying that it isn't advisable in large quantities (shellac is derived from beetles).
