I'm making a purse cake this week and need some structured handles for it.  I've read that some people use rubber tubing for this?  I'm not worried about it being food safe, as it will only be touched by the handles and no one is going to eat the handles... but where do I find something like this?  Thanks!

there's always someone who will try to eat the handles, baby sweetcheeks or uncle Buck.

but there are many rubber food safe molds and rubber utensils.......

lol I'll be there to stop anyone from eating it :P

 

Thanks Fiore, I guess I should have specified that I need to find it locally due to time.  Mainly I'm just wondering what stores people might go to for it.  Home Depot?

well if you're sure nobody will eat it then you can easily get tubing at lowe's or home depot

AWhat about a brewing supply store - if you have one near you. I know my DH used rubber tubing as a siphon when making beer so it is food safe.

That's brilliant!  Always better to stay food safe if possible.  I can easily find one of those stores, thanks!
