Howdy all!
I've had a search and a mooch on this lovely board (Got lost in the process, been here an hour just going over people's questions, looking at answers, love this category!)

But just wondering if anyone knew about the food safety rules on using polymer clay as cake toppers?
(I'm making a couple to sell and I'd rather not get sued for poisoning people with my clay antics!)

Do I need to make bases for the items out of wood/card or will it be okay?

Any help much appreciated!

Don't have time to write much now, but I think most makers of polymer clay cake toppers put food safe bases on them just to be absolutely sure. The bases could be ones that don't show or ones that show; they could be fairly plain and small or they could have a larger footprint and include other small items, etc, that pertain to the couple, their interests, or just other decorative elements.

If you want to check out some of the clay toppers and also more info on using polymer clay with food and drink, look on these pages at my site:

That's what I thought, just wanted to be certain!

Thanks a million Diane! x
