Just want to double check, is all confectioners glaze edible? it smells so toxic!
Yes, it's edible. Yes, it's made from bugs. The smell completely disappears when the glaze dries.
loopilu, I changed your subject line so that members would have some idea what your question was.
Of course! That's what makes jelly beans (et al) shiny.
I know it is supposed to be edible, but man, the smell is just awful. Here is a link to the kind I have (but have not used!) http://www.shopbakersnook.com/m5_view_item.html?m5:item=3855
AND, if you use it, you have to use the thinner to clean your brushes with too (which smells like paint thinner)
EDITED to add: OK - it blocked the site I found, just google it, and you can read about it.
Yup. Mine has FDA approved on it. It is hard to believe...the stuff can be nasty. Don't get it on your clothes or let it harden on your tables.... nasty....
I made the home made edible glaze using 50% corn syrup and 50% vodka it worked very well and the vodka smell didn't last.
