Many gravity defying cakes contain extensive internal structures to keep them food safe. 

Guest Tutor Lin Sunyoto explains some of the methods you can use to ensure your structures are food safe.  Watch the video above to find out more. 

Top Tips for safe food structures

The following top tips will also help. 

  • Don't assume that because someone else is doing it one way, that that way is food safe. Sometimes they are wrong. 
  • Check your own country legislation as different countries have different rules.
  • Whatever you do, ensure your customer is made aware in writing of which parts of the cake are not edible. 
  • Use common sense. If it is not edible, it should not come into contact with someone's mouth unless there has been a food safe barrier. 

Materials used

  • Tin foil
  • Cling film
  • Food safe tape
