Dragees (Silver Ball) Cookie and Cake Decorations

Is anyone else having trouble finding "dragees"? These are the little silver balls for cookies and cake decorating.

I found them on line, but at $4.95 to purchase 4 oz. and $6.95 to ship them. I checked three Walmarts here and four different craft stores. No one seems to carry them.

Have you tried your regular market like, Safeway, Albertson's etc? I saw some in the baking isle of Safeway not long ago.

Hope this is helpful.

I used to find them at Bulk Barn, but I haven't looked this year as I have no time to bake. elaine

I don't think you can get them anymore. It use to say on the bottle "non-edible for decoration only". Not only that, but a long time ago I worked in dentistry and they were a main source of broken teeth and cracked fillings. I miss them, too. They always looked great on cookies at Christmas.

Wal-mart stocks them in the craft section by the wedding stuff! I always go there first :-)

Thanks for all the help. None in my area(been 50 miles). No food stores, Wal Marts, craft stores that carry Wilton products etc. I did find them on line at:nutsonline.com Merry Christmas to all.

In California they are illegal, so make sure your state can sell them. I'm in Phoenix and the only place that I have found to buy them locally is a cake decorating store, Cake Arts, but they have more that just cake stuff, they have cookie cutters, food dyes, candy supplies, etc.

I know this is late and you have probably already found some, but maybe it'll will help you with something else!
