I'm baking a dialysis machine cake.  The picture that the woman gave me shows plastic tubes coming out of the machine.  I'm wondering if I can use clear vinyl tubing.  I bought some at the hardware store and am wondering if it would be safe to insert into part of the cake.  Thoughts??

 

thanks.

i don't think it would be a problem -- you could wrap the part that touches the cake in some foil or plastic wrap to ensure it though -- y'know wash it really well of course --

 

i'm just curious as to the occasion for a dialysis machine cake -- i once worked at a place that made all sorts of medical apparatus including internal/external body parts --

AShe is a nurse who works in the dialysis unit and she's having a Christmas party for the other staff in the unit.

that makes sense then -- hope all goes very well --

 

but isn't it a little creepy in a way -- i often found it a little/a lot off putting -- i mean like all the parts of your lungs and pancreas and iv bottles and blood and hypos and i think i've blocked a lot of it thankfully -- idk was not my favorite subject matter -- and medical peeps really go for this stuff   ~shiver~

AWhat about using tubing that is used for making beer? Then it would be food grade and you wouldn't have to worry about contacting the cake.
