XP: Oriental Lilies - Toxic or no?

We're DIY bouquets and pomanders and I was considering using leftover flowers to garnish the cake and/or cake table.  We're planning roses, carnations, alstromeria, and sorbonne oriental lilies.  I know that roses & carnations are fine, and that alstromeria are toxic, but I can't find anything about the Oriental Lilies.  My google-fu is failing me as its excluded from every edible vs. non-edible list I've found thusfar and the blogs I've seen have conflicting results.  I've found several species of lilies that are edible as well as those that are toxic but nothing about these hybrids.  I know that a lot of oriental hybrids are toxic specifically to cats but I haven't seen anything re: humans.

  • If something is pretty much guaranteed to kill my cat, I'm not going to put it on my cake.

    THIS link (clicky) says they're toxic to humans, too.

    1) they are toxic to humans
    2) they have a super strong scent that can overpower anything they are next to.  I don't know about you but I would not want to eat a piece of cake that smells like a lily.
