Does anyone know how to do this perfect GOLD covered OREOS ??? - Page 2

post #16 of 31
It's so scary because I bought a jar of that stuff at the cake decorating store assuming it was edible. I mean it was in the cake store after all!! Luckily I had seen a post about it here before I gave it to a customer

I bought floristry wire and tape at the cake decorating store. Should I then assume that it was edible? I mean , it was in the cake store after all!

I, as a consumer, have a responsibility to actually READ the label and find out for myself what is edible vs non-toxic.

morganchampagne: I've seen several photos on the internet where cakepops, cupcakes, and cookies are generously coated with the stuff.......yet it's not supposed to be eaten.

 

Labeled Non-Toxic.  If it's just shaved plastic or something else that is supposed to go through your gastric system, well you are probably smart to stay on the safe side.  Your cakes are lovely, nicely decorated and well designed.  They don't need plastic sprinkles IMO.

It's a relatively dull finish just like any metallic airbrush sprays.

Have you actually used it or just seen the ads? I've seen ads Chefmaster spray that looked just like that photo, too and it's misleading.

I also talked to a company who sells edible real gold spray. When pressed for info about what it looks like sprayed, they said it wasn't very shiny.  If I wanted shiny, they said I should by their gold leaf.

I contacted "O" Pops by Angie but I am not optimistic about an answer because they don't reply to anyone on their FB page.  I let you know if anyone messages me back.

No, I haven't used the one from Germany - it's not available in the states due to shipping regulations.  If you Google Esslack (purchase) what comes up for the States is Amazon and they show ChefMaster and other spray.

Is this true of the sprays as well? I don't use any of the above-mentioned products, but I've been tempted! They don't even sell the silver and gold dragees at the hobby store by my house because of edibility concerns.

Guys, if Play-Doh is cheaper than the fondant I use, I'm just going to use that instead.  If it's safe enough for kids to eat, it's safe enough for friends and family!  Plus, they have SO many colors, even some fun ones with glitter.  Cake decorating just got so much more awesomer.

this is very similar to using a spray coating

Those look incredibly unappealing to me. Not like food at all. I am officially over the "bling" look and these "cookies" are solely responsible.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I know what you mean, I had to make a cake last month and I actually researched cookie cutters before I used a cutter it on fondant just to make sure that it was safe. LOL !   It was old and a little rusted and was not sure I should use it.  I felt so unsure of it that I didn't use it and actually threw it away.  And here they are using Disco Dust on edible goods.
