Hello.  I was wondering if anyone here knew where I could buy food grade acetate..strips, sheets…. I live in Southern CA.. L.A. County.  Looking for where I can buy it or online order it.  Thanks!

Is there such a thing as food grade acetate?  You might want to check with a company that sells chocolate transfer sheets, which I believe are acetate with colored cocoa butter designs - certainly they are meant to come in contact with food.

PAT:
Good morning. Pat check out the yellow pages of your tel. book for Chocolate/ Confectionary words to that effect. Call & ask…if they do not have any ask if they know who may handle that product???. Also Pat check out food wholesales…they cater to comm. restaurants & the like.  Good luck & enjoy the rest of the day.

Online you can buy it from Pfeil and Holing (http://www.cakedeco.com); or Albert Uster Imports (http://www.auiswiss.com); if you are near a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, you might ask at their bakery dept because a lot of mousse cakes will use the strip to keep them intact; they might be willing to sell you some.

You might also try Country Kitchens but I don’t know their website off the top of my head.  They’re in the mid-west I think.

In fact, I wonder if KopyKake has it - at least they’re closer to you.  You are looking for “clear cake band” if you decide to google it.

Thank you for the great suggestions.  Yes, Patrincia there is food grade acetate.  Non-food grade can actually leech out chemicals into your food.  Some people use anything though…

Pat, You can get them mailorder from Country Kitchens, Fort Wayne, IN as Jeanne mentioned.  They ship anywhere in the world.  Here’s the link:

Good to know!  Jeanne’s post reminded me that I saw my local bakery department in my grocery store selling 2-layer cakes cut in half.  The cut halves were lined with acetate sheets, so that might be an inexpensive place to get it if you only need a limited supply.
