I just got Pioneer Woman's recipe for Epiphany Cake. She includes plastic and "metal" trinkets to bake in the cake but doesn't say anything about melting trinkets. Did I miss something? Wouldn't some of these trinkets affect the taste or melt when baked?

I must say that anyone who can't follow her recipes doesn't deserve to eat.

The oven wouldn't be hot enough to melt the plastic and the metal is no problem. Anyone who is really worried could use only trinkets made of 10kt gold or finer. Gold of 10kt or more is inert. Of course, the cake would be a little pricy and the one receiving the bean wouldn't be terribly happy.

You'd have to make sure it is really metal, and not a scary & dangerous metal like lead which aside from being poisonous has quite a low melting point. Stainless steel would be ideal for safety reasons. But, dang, cool that cake ALL the way down before you serve 8it!

I'm not really a fan of her dessert recipes. That being said, I would be far to nervous to put that stuff in a cake, unless your were absolutely certain there were no toxic metal or even toxic paint.
