I can't reduce the font size of the second line in the customizer, anyone else having this issue?

I used PLA as it is typically derived from Plants see - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polylactic_acid

"Poly(lactic acid) or polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch (in the United States and Canada), tapioca roots, chips or starch (mostly in Asia), or sugarcane (in the rest of the world)."

And a quick google gave me this - https://reprage.com/post/36869678168/is-3d-printed-pla-food-safe

"The study found that PLA is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) when used in contact with food. Their summary concluded that PLA releases a small amount of lactic acid into foods. Lactic acid is a common food ingredient, that is even found in breast milk. They estimated that the amount of lactic acid people would consume from PLA to be about 700 times less than the lactic acid intake of breast-fed infants."

I believe that it is still not a wise idea to press a low-melting plastic into a warm food.
Food safe means that it is harmless in regular contact with food. The tests also apply to pure PLA plastic. You don't know anything about additives such as dyes of different manufacturers or the purity of their processes.

Risk analysis belongs in the hands of experts and does not correspond to a quick Google search.

what filament did you use ? are you sure it has no consequences to eat the slice afterward ?

It'd be good to add some words about procedures to make the print food safe.
