label ingriendents?Nutritin Facts

I"m getting such a run around on this topic even call FDA but the  hold for an answer  is taking hours. But my question is do we have to put all ingriendents on our products once we start selling online or in person even is your a very small bus? Also do we have to put the Nutritin Facts and if so do anyone  have a lead on how to do this?  I was ready to launch my site when it came to mind and don't want to put myself in any hot water before I get started.  I thought I read somewhere if  you…See More

"I'm spraying tempered colored cocoa butter, at working temp (31-33 dec C). If sprayed correctly it sets almost immediately. If sprayed too heavily, just like car paint, it runs."

"What are you spraying and at what temperature? Does the mix set as it hits the cooler moulds or might it run? Thanks, Duffy"

"Love the photos! Thanks for sharing. I'm also checking into getting a airbrusher. I've been advised to used a plastic bag as my background then I could scrape off the excess and remelt it. Seems like a good idea!"

Hi Karen.
I wish I could afford a class at the French Culinary Institute. I took a class at ICE (Institute of Culinary Education) and I loved it. They ran 2 classes in a week, so it was a good 30 hour run, and we had 3 different instructors, which was also nice.
I wanted to take a hands-on class before diving into an online training. My class at Ecole begins next Friday.
I hope this helps!
