Does anyone know if I can use a fog machine for a cake display? My daughter is having a zombie prom party and I would love to use the fog machine but I don't know if it would be safe!

I have no idea about the fog machine but my dd used a bucket of dry ice behind her cake table for halloween one year and it was really neat but you need a big chunk to get a good effect but it lasted for several hours HTH

I would do this. The dry ice sounds safer to me. Many of the foggers use a water/glycol mix that can leave a residue near the unit. I think that could pose problems for the safety of eating the cake as well as possibly altering the cake decorations.

The fog smells pretty bad, too.
