You bought soft artists oil pastels to color your ICING???????????????

NO, no, no! You don't color icing with oil pastels icon_eek.gif

You can dust gum paste flowers that aren't meant to be eaten with non-toxic chalk pastels, but you don't color icing with anything like that.

You can purchase Wilton, Americolor, ChefMaster, Ateco, etc. gel/paste colors, or dry powder food colors to color your icing. To get a pastel, you just use less--but you DON'T use "pastels"................

In your original post, you mentioned that you bought the non-toxic Mungyo brand (Pastel Color Paints)... if they are non-toxic, you may still be able to use them on gumpaste flowers (which aren't suppose to be eaten anyway) like BlakesCakes mentioned.

I seem to be the bearer of bad tidings here, but the pastels that can be used on gum paste flowers is actually CHALK pastesl, not the soft oil ones.

Are you kidding??? I've been using a churchkey can opener that I got for a buck at the grocery store. The other end actually punctures cans too! hehehe...

You bought 5???? How many hands do you have??? icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif

rubbing the chalks on mesh screen (like a sieve) works really well too.

The teeth thing totally made me laugh. I was in my kitchen the other day, opening "Mushroom" with my teeth and I thought, what if I was standing on a food network cake challenge and put my petal dust in my mouth?!

The worst part is I decided I would duck behind the counter out of camera site. I somehow suspect a bottle opener would be the better choice though...
