The KopyKake food writers are NOT "repackaged Sharpies".
They are made using U.S. and E.U. Certified Food Colors. This is clearly stated on the packaging and online when referencing the ingredients.

I am certain that food markers are just that--markers made with approved food coloring.

Although I know that Sharpies are non-toxic, I would never, ever use them on something that will be eaten..............the same way that I would never, ever use disco dust on something that will be eaten.

Know better, do better. Find the EDIBLE alternative--ALWAYS!

This is all so interesting, certainly clearing up some of my questions!

I've used Sharpies on fondant pieces that I know will NOT be eaten (I am at the party and don't allow anyone to eat them). However, I have found that lines made with Sharpies will actually "spread" and get very "fuzzy" and distort into something that is not what I initially drew. Most edible writers I've used have better staying power and don't smudge or go foggy.

I'm thinking that people are confusing non toxic for it's intended use, such as external or being able to handle something with your hands, and it being safe to be consumed.

I have found that when I need a very fine line on fondant (or crusted butter cream for that matter) I use an extremely fine tipped art brush with americolor food color gel. I love the way it looks and have not had the spreading issues. I can also do finer detail than with the food markers.

Thousands of kindergartners would applaud you.

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!
