    Kay Demonbren's Note:

    One of the many many items that went into the making of my daughter's first birthday cake; this is a great medium for the decorations. It is edible, but you'll probably chip a tooth if you try. PLEASE NOTE: You will also need 1 Tbs Gum-tex or 1 Tbs tragacanth gum for this recipe. These ingredients could not be recognized.
