Cake Safety Tips

  • Remove any non-edible items from the cake before serving.
  • Never use non-edible items that are small enough to bite or swallow.
  • Never use toothpicks to hold items or cake pieces together.
  • Be careful where you place birthday candles on the cake. Keep them at least 2 inches away from anything flammable.
  • Non-edible items on a cake are usually not designed for children under 3. It is a choking hazard.
  • Notify your guests if you used nuts in or on your cake, in case they have a nut allergy. Some allergic reactions are fatal.
