Edible Clays instead of Gingerbread Dough

by Linda
(North Carolina, USA)

Is the "salt clay", often used by children, considered "legal" in Gingerbread contests that must be totally edible? My grandkids are entering the Grove Park Inn Gingerbread contest in November, and while the ingredients in this clay are salt, flour, and water, no-one uses this in their entries, and we don't want to go to all the work and then be declared ineligible.

Hi Linda,

I copied and pasted this from the official entry form from the GPI website. I think you are safe!

"Edible materials are not limited to sweets. No artificial display materials, such as Styrofoam or interior lighting, are to be
used in the construction or decoration of the entry. Candies must be unwrapped and free of any non-edible materials
such as lollipop sticks."

See you there!
