Safety Seal – your answer to Food Safe Decorations in and on Cakes

safety seal top


Safety Seal is a revolutionary food safe product that allows you to place florist wires, fresh flowers and other non edible decorations directly into your cake by providing a Food Safe Barrier.  Safety Seal comes in a 120g pot which you melt in the microwave, simply dip your product in, allow to set and you are ready to place in your cake.   You will get many uses out of your pot as depending on the product you are dipping, it only requires  one or two dips to make safe your product.  You can also colour Safety Seal to ensure that it is disguised if part of the product shows above your cake.  Safety Seal is being readily accepted by many of the Cake Decorating Competitions out there, so check with your Association.

Australia Day Cookies using Cake Crack (very easy)

Australia Day Cookies

What you will need for these Cookies

Share with Friends and Family this Australia Day.


  1. Your Favourite Cookie Dough Recipe or you can use our Gingerbread Recipe shown in the Christmas Snowman Blog Entry.
  2. Cake Crack –
  3. Pastry Brush
  4. Cookie Cutters in shape of Kangaroo and Australia
  5. Lemon Yellow and Orange Americolor Gel Food Colours.
  6. Decoration (we made gumpaste thongs for the decoration together with gumpaste small rolled balls for the Kangaroos.

Roll out your cookie dough and cut your cookies out as per usual.  Prior to baking them mix up Cake Crack with a little water in a small dish to a smooth consistency.

Kangaroos –  Using the white Cake Crack and your pastry brush paint the Kangaroos in one direction only.  One layer of Cake Crack will give you small cracks on the cookies where as if you paint multiple times the cracks will be larger.

Australia Map – with the left over Cake Crack from the Kangaroos – colour this with a little Americolor Lemon Yellow – adding a touch of Orange for the Sunburnt Country look!  Mix well,  if need be add a little more water to get back to the smooth consistency.  Once again you can paint once with the pastry brush for small cracks or multiple times for larger cracks.

Then Bake your cookies as you usually do.  When you remove these from the oven you will have some unique and gorgeous Cracked Cookies ready to decorate as you wish.

Be Warned – using Cake Crack can be addictive you will want to find other treats to Crack!

Have Fun and Happy Australia Day for the 26th January!  Our Great Southern Land.
