Hi lovely bakers, 

Does anyone have a fondant topper/figurine business in Australia? - no baking involved. Just fondant decoration.

I love making cakes but as mother of 2 (2yrs old n newborn), opening a cake business won't happen that soon so instead, I'd like to sell fondant decorations on Etsy. However, I'm not sure whether this business falls into non-food business or not as it's made of edible ingredients but it's more like decoration rather than food to consume. (somebody suggested to state something like  'it's made for decoration only' in the description on Etsy). 

I'm going to contact the local council next week but would like to hear any advice or experience if you have any to share. 

Thank you x

I could not answer your question, Chloe, but have you considered making the toppers from clay?  They would give the same effect, be easier to ship, and you would not need to worry about the food vs non-food part of the business.
