Products Questions


Do you know where to find
Food Safe Dragees?

Why don't you sell Silver Dragee Balls?
Silver Dragees, which have been in use as pastry decorations for hundreds of years, are not currently sold by
Cake & Cupboard because they contain trace amounts of heavy metals and the FDA deems them safe for only
non-edible decoration.
    "I am continually on the search for safe Silver Dragees,
and when I find them you willl be the first to know."
How do you recommend melting candy coating (chocolate) wafers?
We melt them in the microwave by emptying an entire bag of melts into a Pyrex bowl & microwaving it in intervals of 30 secs on defrost. For small detail work a Candy Melter Palette is an invaluable tool for melting small amounts of many different colors.
What is considered a standard size baking cup?
As you may know, there are many different variations on baking cup dimensions. We consider a standard size baking cup to have 1-3/8in walls (sides) and a 2in diameter bottom. These are the most common size that people generally use.
Why don't you sell Sapphire Blue Luster Dust?

Luster Dust
Food Safe Luster Dust

We do not sell Sapphire Blue Luster Dust because the color contains Iron Blue or Chromium Oxide and must be labeled "for decorative use only - not intended for ingestion."

General Questions

How can I paint Fondant without an expensive airbrush set?  
At Cake & Cupboard we are not a fan of airbrush sets, although they can produce amazing results in the hands of an experienced user. Instead we have found that the best way to paint texture on white fondant is to use gel food coloring and mix it with lemon juice or Vodka with a small paint brush. For Texture and small linework this method is exceptional.  
Do you recommend lining cake pans with anything?  
Lining the bottom of your cake pans with waxed paper will give you the best cake results and it will release evenly.
