I have been wanting to bake treats in flowers pots for a while but have been a little afraid to.

Do they sell food safe FP? I saw on a cooking show on foodnetwork a chef say they were special FP used for baking. I have never seen them.

I know I can't spray glaze them because its toxic.

Any other ideas?

I have seen in restaurants where they use unglazed terra cotta pots for bread. Just regular terra cotta that they had washed in their dish machine. If you wanted to glaze them, you would need to research glazes for ceramic dishware - just make sure it will be oven safe after it is fired in the kiln.

Did you want to use the flower pots as a mould to bake in or as part of the final serving/presentation of the treats?

I've used a terracotta flower pot before lined in foil and sprayed for baking some fruit cakes that I ended up covering in fondant to resemble a terracotta pot. HTH?

Thanks, I want to try both ways, baking inside or just filling with the baked goods.

I read somewhere else that if I clean then in boiling water I should be good to go.

You can bake in unglazed pots, just wash very well first
