Edible Food Projects on Shabbos


I run a Shabbos kids’ program. I’m wondering if I can play Twizzler Pictionary with the kids (making pictures out of Twizzler strands which will be eaten after)?

— Permitted.


In general, what are the guidelines regarding edible food crafts on Shabbos?

— See here:

May one eat a cake/challah/cookie shaped as a number or letter on Shabbos? How about shaped as a picture?

Are edible sukkahs allowed?



What about frosting cupcakes?

— Yes, as long as you don’t make a design.
