I wouldn't...it'd be better to make some kind of gelatine-glaze for that.

CONFECTIONERS' GLAZE or VARNISH is food grade shellac dissolved in isopropyl alcohol which is used on sugar flowers and other decorations and ornaments.

Don't use it on anything you are going to eat ...

I agree with the above poster, Auzzi. While it is food safe, you do not want to be eating it! Its also called "leaf glaze", and usually it is used cut with thinner (alcohol based).

Life's too short to make cake pops.

I agree with the above, when i bought my first bottle i freaked right out thinking . .omg this cant be real! but, i only use it on flowers, and it gives such a pretty sheen to rose leaves and ive never had issues with discolouration . . At first its looks a little darker but then as it dries its clear.

Confectioner's glaze is made of the protein Zein which is derived from maize.  You know how corn is shiny ?  That is because of Zein.  You know how corn resists water ?  That is because of Zein.  The fact is that if you have ever eaten corn, you have eaten Zein.  It is used in confectionery to make things shiny and waterproof and is harmless to touch or eat.

Actually, the confectioner's glaze being discussed here is made from a wax free shellac and is a food grade refined bleached lacquer--it's not made from Zein.

 

As I read it, Zein is used more commercially and for panning candies.

You couldn't be closer to the truth.

Ordinary shellac thinner is simply denatured alcohol.

Logically, vodka or Everclear should cut the stuff.
