The product will be used, after melting, to decorate and write on cakes and pastries. FE08E Scrivosa White will be imported in pails containing 1.25-kilograms, six pails to a carton.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 2106.90.6197, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations not elsewhere specified or included...other...other...containing over 10 percent by weight of milk solids...other...containing sugar derived from sugar cane and/or sugar beets.
