can you use pixie dust on ornaments that will be on the cake? I don't think that they would be consummed but that does not mean they won't. I would hate for them to be hazardous. They are listed as non toxic but not FDA approved. Also, can you use pixie dusts for competition?

if you are going to put in on an actual cake (not a dummy cake) and there is a possibility that it might be consumed, i wouldn't use it. i would go with either the luster dust or disco dust that is specifically made for cakes. about the competitions, i would check with the comps guidelines so you aren't disqualified because of it. HTH!

I have rainbow disco dust. I was told it is all the same just different names. I can not find any of it listed FDA approved just non toxic. Elmer's is non toxic as is playdough, and chalks. I just don't know that it is edible.

if its the disco dust that is marketed especially for cakes, then i would think it would be edible. i've seen several cakes on here that are covered with it.

Yes, it is marketed for cakes, I think I want to say GSA but I can not remember. I bought the luster dust, disco dust, a fondant mold. It is all in the same box, I looked on the site to see if it was FDA approved but it is not listed. I don't have the box or site now. I always have GSA on my history. Thanks for your help!

Pixie dust is the same thing as disco dust.
