This stuff is made by some baker in MN and was developed by her and her husband (one of whom is a geologist). There was an article in an American cake magazine a few years ago.
Anything with mica should be a VERY limited addition to a cake. Just like real metallic gold or silver.
Bigger problem is, that most people have absolutely no clue to know when they have mica and when they have plastic. Better to be sure by reading the label for ingredients.
