Hi happigolucki35! ... Well, technically it is edible. But, I haven't personally come across a recipe that I thought tasted good. icon_wink.gif

It is completely edible... just not usually very palatable, although some recipes aren't too bad.

the only reason i would never eat any BRAND is because it dries so hard. don,t want a dentist bill! lol.

my kids LOVE it- They say It tastes like those hard sticks that you get with the flavorade, or whatever pouches... where you dip the stick in the koolaid?/

My 2 year old actually ate my daugters tiara for her cake. he had gotten the first one that fell apart, and when he found the 2nd one, he ate it too...

My kids also LOVE the fondant (MMF) they say that one tastes like the inside of an oreo, the other.. I cant remember... Sometimes I use butter flavor, sometimes vanilla.

Satin Ice gumpaste doesn't taste too bad. Kind of like those candy cigarettes we ate as kids. I don't want to eat it but the kids seem to like it..LOL

It is edible until you add things to it, like wire.

When you make it at home it is all ingredients that you could eat. It just isn't something, once it dries rock hard, that most people will want to munch on.

Um sure it is! however when someone says can i eat it? I say "well you can, but the ? is will you like it?" and if they are over 8 they don't the kids usually like it, because it's sugar!! icon_smile.gif
