Hi, I have bought a Metallic Silver luster dust from the cake decorating section of a specialty store but the label says non-edilble and not meant to be consumed and is only for decortaing only, I am really confused???? The lady who specializes in that section said that its safe and it is for cake decorating, but why do they put those non-edible labels?They even put it on those metallic silver and gold dragees' when they say its safe to eat?
I'd like to hear the answer to that one myself.
Yes, its really confusing, do you use silver and gold too?
I just used the silver on a cake tonight. I have the gold but haven't used it yet.
Does your say not-edible like mine?
No mine doesn't say that but I have the gold and silver pearl dust.
what brand is yours kat?
I forgot what brand it was I can find out , but its from switswerland. Do you use the metallic luster dust too that says non-edible or even the dragee's?
I just went on the website of the brand its from and it says, its for chocolate and fondant decorations, but its non-edible I find that very confusing?!?!?!?!
Nope non of my lustre dusts say non-edible at all, i have gold, silver and pearl. My dragees i buy at the supermarket also in no way say non-edible and even though people are a bit iffy on eating them cose they are banned in some states of countries etc i have absoltely no problem in using and eating them.
Maybe for the dusts they say just for decoration and non edible just incase to save their backsides, cose they don't want to be seen saying like eat all you want?
Here is a video on Gold lusters.
The ones that basically say non edible are basically used for details that you
can take out of the cake. They wont harm if they are eaten but is best not too.
Hi Edna I seen all of your videos and just watched the one that you sent me, so does that fact apply to silver too, I used some silver on cake but just for a rope border and a few gumpaste decorations, but since its being put on cake what happens if it gets consumed because there is a chance that it will, is it totally safe, I have the highlighter I think.
Elise, Thanks so much for your input
Edna, I love all of your videos, I think Im gonna purchase your stargazer Lilly video, you make such beautiful cakes and flowers. I hope to be as good as you one day
Thanks for the complements!..
The silver is the same..They are meant to be used for the cakes but they dont want people to eat them. I will say that I have eaten some so Im not dead yet. But is best to take the pieces out, wich is what I usually do.
And I bet you will be great too!..I started just like everyone else!
Hope you have a great Christmas..
Should I say Aloha?...
