Does Hobby Lobby or Michael's carry this or is it online only? I want to find an economical source for it if possible.

If you need it to cut into strips for cake wraps, they're available already cut here:

I ended up finding it at Hobby Lobby in the drafting department, most of the staff told me they did not have it - must be easier than looking it up for a customer...
I want to try wrapping a cake in chocolate icon_smile.gif
And trying the faux bois technique...

Do you think it is like other things, where there is a food-safe option and a non-food-safe option?

The acetate I use for caking I bought at a cake supply place on the Internet. I did have some art-supply acetate already, but did not use that because I assumed it was not food safe.

I guess I don't really know the answer to that - I assumed acetate is the same product in any application. I did a quick google search and didn't find anything on it.
