      1. Hi Marita, Thanks for contacting us! You can use glass plates to make food-safe plates. Use markers or paint pens to make the design on the back of the plate, and then then bake in the oven @350 degrees for 30 mins. Failing that you could serve items like cookies on the plate with a napkin underneath !
