I guess check specifics with your competitions, but I think you might be taking this a little too literal. Luster dust, gumpaste, dragees are manufactured to be used on edible products, they are not considered edible themselves but they are non-toxic for consumption. We all use them (well, except the dragees in CA) regularly.
But again, check with whatever competition you are trying to enter on what is allowed and what is not. It's up to them, really.
