Can anybody tell me is it safe to put onion grass straight into cakes for decoration or should I use straws?
AI would put it into straws
It is made from the same plastic though as straws so do you think it would just be the same ? It just means that there would be little straws all hidden inside the cake :(
AI googled onion grass and read up on it.....I just don't understand why you would want onion on your cake in the first place but each to its own
Kazita, I don't think onion grass is necessarily edible or gives off an "onion" taste to your cake. Like Mo63 said, just decoration...
AOk glad we aren't putting onion on cakes....however going through my classes I was told to never ever just stick something right into the cake I was taught to use straws
THIS is what OP is referring to ...... IF the pics are made from same plastic AS A STRAW...... why the need to use both??
Not saying this is so - just saying - this is what she is asking :) And a pretty valid question too
ARegular straws are sanitary.....where I would figure onion grass is not
AWow people are in good moods tonight I see:-(
Wow - look what I started :)
Thank you ApplegumPam and VKakes11 for clearing things up with Kazita. And thanks for the pics too.
It made me chuckle. Seems I am no further on but thanks for your help.
Not all plastic is food-safe!
I see you are based in the UK - send a message to Jules from Cake Chester (she is on FB too) - she uses these all the time, is lovely and I am sure she will share any info you need
AEach to it's own
I've seen recipes for onion pie, but . . .
