I'm planning on making a halloween castle cake. I want to use the plastic towers that come with wiltons fantasy castle set, but I want to paint them to suit the creepy castle theme.
Any ideas for non-toxic paint to use on them since they will be in contact with the cake? Spray paint and enamel paint would be obvious choices to use on plastic, but I cant use those as they are quite toxic and shouldn't come into contact with food, especially food i'll be serving to other people.
Acrylic paint is less toxic but it peels and might end up in the frosting, if it sticks to the slick plastic at all...
Need help! Has anyone else used painted props on a cake before?
There is the possibility of painting with thinned down royal icing. I use to use it all the time to paint figurines and plastic columns for tier sets. RI can be tinted any color. HTH
In addition to RI, there's fondant or even RKT turrets:
