Metallic silvered dragees (pronounced dra-jays) have been a staple in decorating culinary confections since the late 18th century, but the modern baker will enjoy the newest of shapes and designs.
We love the square styles and use them as decorative brooches and beadwork on our cakes and as our flower centers.
Their beauty often enhances desserts such as cookies, wedding cakes, petits fours, and more.
While classified as a food item in many countries, the USA FDA has decided that they should not be classified as a food item as they consider the silvered finish to be non-edible, therefore we list them as for decorative use only.
Silvered rods begin as something as simple as a tiny piece of pasta to create the core. Then they are panned and coated with sugar. The final finish is the metallic coating that makes them shine.
Most dragees have a wheat semolina center, and they are not considered gluten free. This one actually is a rice grain center.
