Edible silver balls
Tantalizing silver balls perched atop cookies and cupcakes. These are eye catching with that metallic glint. Small silver balls known as "silver dragées" are sold exclusively for decorating cakes and are used under conditions which preclude their consumption as confectionery, they are not considered to be in the category of a food or confectionery.
Edible gold and silver are tasteless. Edible when used as a decoration. These dragées are produced in various sizes, but tend toward slightly larger than a nonpareil and slightly smaller than a small pearl.

How to Select
They are difficult to find in stores, but can be found online in all colors and sizes. These Edible Pearls are hand made to order. Sold only by the 100 count. They are not hard; they are like eating a soft gum ball. So many of the edible pearls sold today are hard and difficult to eat. Our Edible Pearls come in 3 different sizes. Pearls come pearlized with "Super Pearl Dust"
