what caulk to use for silcone whip cream?  
So apparently alot of caulk is really quite toxic. even though its less toxic when dryied its still too toxic for me to use. any one use non toxic brands of caulk that work well for sweets?

I use 100% silicone caulk. It's non-toxic when dry. The GE brand is good.

Sorry to hijack the post but I am trying to collect as much advice as I can about using caulk as my first try with it was a total disaster. Do you put it in a piping bag or apply it from the gun? I put it in a piping bag with a plastic tip and I read on another post that it would easily clean with water. That was a big mistake, I started washing it and scubbing with my bare hands so I then spent the next 30 minutes trying to wash the caulk off my hands and of course never got the tip clean. Are you able to reuse pastry tips?

Pastry bag. It's just impossible to use straight from the tube D: You can't reuse the bags, though, so it's best to get disposable ones.

Also, you can peel caulk off of metal tips most of the time, but if you use cheap plastic tips (like me,) then you just have to toss them when you're done.

I did that too~ I tried to wash the plastic tip afterwards but then i found out that i can just get the sillicon out easily when it's dry...........

I used something like turpentine (just a little bit on a rag/towel) to clean out the tip and it worked great. The one I used was low odor, but it still smelled a lot. All you have to do is wait a few minutes for it to dry and you can use the tip again.
