Fixodent and forget it

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
Well, I tried the fixodent in my fondant today as was mentioned a few days ago in a post. I love it! It makes it just like gumpaste, very stretchy and able to roll thin, and very easy to work with. I even mixed some fixodent with a little water to make a glue. I made figures and so they are still drying. Give it a try if you haven't already. It makes that left over fondant go the extra mile.

Just add the powder(have to be powder form) to your MMf...makes it dry faster and harder.

The amount that you add depends on the amount of fondant that you are using...trial and error thumbs_up.gif .

Wow, Stephanie...I'll have to try that! And it's edible?

all of the links I find reference using fixodent only if the product isn't going to be eaten.

Ingredients include: Polymethyvinylether Maleic Acid Calcium-Zinc Salt, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Cellulose Gum, Silicon Dioxide, Flavor, Red 27 Aluminum Lake


since I dont' know what ANY of those things are, I wouldn't put them in or on a cake. Just my opinion, though.

Not sure if it's edible but people use it for their dentures which they put in their mouth.

Yeah, I tend to agree, but let's face it, that stuff is meant to go in your mouth (to hold those falsies!), so it can't exactly be poisonous, can it icon_confused.gificon_lol.gif !

well, not necessarily. Toothpaste goes into your mouth, but it can make you sick if you ingest it. This is especially true for kids. Read the label (well, here in the US anyway).

I would just use it for those things which aren't going to be eaten such as figures and large flowers. I couldn't find the ingredient list on the box but I am with the others it's not going to hurt someone to have it in items that are just sitting on a cake. You wouldn't want to eat it because it does have a minty smell and taste and would change the flavor.

I'm not saying we should all go out and eat Fixodent, but unlike toothpaste it is designed to be in the mouth for hours doing it's job, toothpaste is meant to be spat out, so there is a difference there, don't you think?

Well, we can agree to disagree. I'm not trying to convince anyone one way or the other - Just saying I wouldn't use it in a cake or in decorations. Totally 100% my opinion only.

WOW! This is interesting icon_surprised.gif I think I'm going to go Google Fixodent... I would automatically assume that Bonjovibabe is correct, though.... I'll be back icon_lol.gif

I went to look up info. (fixodent.com) and it said non-toxic w/ proper usage. But it did also have something that said that if it were ingested in large amts. it could cause nausea or vomiting. People aren't really supposed to eat the gumpaste stuff on our cakes either, right? Is that just because they don't taste good or is there something bad for you there? This is not a rhetorical question, either; I really don't know the answer icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif Could someone help me with that one? Also, the Luster dusts aren't supposed to be eaten in large quantities? But some whole cakes are 'painted' (w/vodka or other extract) w/ luster dusts, right? I need some more info. all the way around icon_razz.gif But really, I'm intrigued about using the fixodent kind of like gumpaste!

Wow, thanks for all the replies regarding ingesting! But you're right, how many people actually sit and 'eat' the bow on top of the cake? Nada...not even little kids...
