..............tomsann said: ....... seriously when you do gum paste flowers they are edible but would you sit and eat your flowers???? ........

I so agree with so much of what you said and have not read all the posts following your post but the above quote is what I want to hone in on at this time.

The average person at a wedding (or whatever event) will not consider eating gum paste flowers - however I made one wedding cake that had a big swag of red roses on it.  When the MOB returned my equipment she spent some 15 minutes telling me all about the kids eating those roses.  That further convienced me that I would continue NOT making flowers with wires!

I only suggested that because IBS is very common and even more commonly diagnosed. The people you're talking about are probably the ones who have to avoid seeds.

That's what I was thinking, seeds and specks and nuts and plastic.

I'm convinced that people will eat anything....including the adults.:?

 

With my luck if I ate a bunch of this plastic stuff, my intestines would build an army of plastic soldiers and they'd hide in my kidneys.

 

Thankfully I'm not that good at decorating, so my simple homemade food decos will all be edible and all will be well.

I did a cake for a young lady who is a friend of my daughter's, and used disco dust on the gumpaste shapes. When my daughter, 7 at the time, came home, she told me she ate the huge glitter crusted doll shape off the front of the cake, and 3 of the glitter crusted hearts on wires that were protruding from the cake, and a purse, shoes, skirt and top. She thought it was great she ate a whole outfit, lol. All glitter CRUSTED. I told the mom to throw the pieces away, but she didn't, and let the kids eat them "because they wanted to". Almost 3 years later, my daughter is fine, but I don't let her go over there because I wonder if she will let them drink and smoke and whatever else "they want to" do. SMH.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

You gotta love it... "But they WANTED to." Seriously? People need to learn to say no to kids for pete's sake.

i see what you mean and we've all done our share of 'please remove -- don't eat this'

 

but i think that the responsibility to use safe and responsible ingredients and products lies with us as the food provider -- we (in general) boast about 'we bake from scratch--no big chemicals in my cake--but the decor will inflame your plumbing and light up the night your chamber pot' --

 

i worked with a guy who would not even put a little plastic baby in a mardis gras king cake -- we forget it's food trying to make it authentic and wonderful as possible --

 

so for me i don't like to deliver food that can't be eaten--for the most part--i still use wire in flowers and foam rose buds though-- 

 

yeah of course the kids want to eat them
