Silver dragees?

Does anyone know if you can still buy the little silver balls (I think they are called silver dragees)? I can't find them anywhere. I just bought a new cupcake recipe book this morning and some of the recipes call for them for decoration. The book was printed in 2006, so it's not old.

Can't find them anymore here. This is probably the reason why...

Thanks for the site. I guess it explains why I can't find them anymore.

I loved picking them off of my cupcakes as a kid, and eating them. I couldn't imagine anyone would eat enough of them in a lifetime for them to ever be a problem. Interesting website though--I never knew that.

Banned in California? What are the chances of that?

Question Silver

Why could it be harmful?

I took a look at Wilton's site - but didn't see any dragees. However, noticed some silver & gold dust & several jimmies, assorted sprinkles, & pearls. Worth checking out. Speaking of cupcakes, there's a ginormous cupcake the size of a cake, but the pan is about $27 - yikes. And, another cupcake recipe I like is - a cupacke w a strawberry inserted inside. If your interested let me know.

Wow, Amy. That is some cupcake. Wouldn't you love to have that cupcake pan? I just bought a new cupcake cookbook the other day. It has some great recipe, especially the frostings. I would love your recipe with the strawberry inserted inside. Thanks, JoAnn

Yes, please. I'd like one of each, lol. That's one BIG cupcake.

Thank goodness for Mastercook. I save everything.

This is one version, w the strawberry plunked in in the finished cupcake.

Recipes : Strawberry-Lime Stuffed Cupcakes : Food Network

And, one w the berry baked in the mix. Yum. Yum.

Coconut & Lime: Lemon Cupcakes with Fresh Strawberry Centers

(Maybe one could cheat & buy some chocolate (etc) cupcakes & cut the hole for the strawberry )

Let us know how you like the book & the name, if you like. Have fun cupcake making
