Okay, I just called Signature Brands for their gluten free products list, but they're not in until 8am this morning. I need to make my daughter cupcakes for a birthday party she's going to on Saturday. I want to put some of those Cake Mates flowers on it so that it looks fancier than the cake that they will be serving. If she has to be different, the least I can do is make it look tastier and fancier than the stuff they're having. Anyone have any clue? I wanted to start experimenting with things tonight. I have the Cake Mates Decors Snowflake Decors.

The chemically derived alcohol does not have a grain base. The shellac is a natural food grade resin secretion from the lac insect.

Carnauba Wax is exuded by the leaves of the Brazilian “Tree of Life” to conserve the moisture within the tree and leaves. The Carnauba Palm grows in the northern and northeastern parts of Brazil along the riverbanks, valley and lagoons where the soil is dark and fertile. It is extracted from the leaves for use in food. It is FDA approved under Regulation 21 of the CFR. It has no nutritional value.

thanks for posting that... I knew some of the Cake mate items were safe, but didn't have a complete list... (I had called on the Barbie edible images when I made my daughter's birthday cake one year)

Thank you for posting that!! I just sent my husband to the store for food coloring and he came back with the Betty Crocker Gel Colors with "modified food starch" listed. AARRRGGG We have been on this diet for 2 years, hasn't he figured it out by now! :blink: Anyway, glad to know these are ok and now I can make blue cupcakes. :P

If it's wheat based modified food starch, they have to say wheat by law. So, it's probably corn based MFS unless it says wheat?

I'd call on the food coloring if it doesn't specifically say wheat. Or does it?
