I have never used Wilton dusts (and don't intend to!).
I do beleive the petaldusts are o.k. -- it's the ones that are matalic such as NuSilver that are not to be consumed.To Im499
: I repeat my suggestion on how to get a shiny gold finish on your b'cream cake:
The best one can do is make a golden yellow icing and paint it w/Karo Syrup or piping gel thinned down for the shine.xtrulyexotic
askes: You really can't eat anything that has luster dust on it? I've seen some cakes where gold or silver was painted on the cake. Or if you watch Amazing Wedding Cakes, the platinum cake was painted with silver. Are you not supposed to eat it?.....No, that's not what I said It's *ONLY* the matalic (shiny true) gold and silver dusts you cannot eat.
Yes, I see lots of people who use silver & gold on their cakes......even I have in the past but.......NuSilver and gold are heavy metals that are never digested nor eleminated from the body.
They stay inside you and any you consume builds up and can poision you over time. How much time? How much consumned? I don't know.
