I hate to repost this, but when I went to look a the responses to it there was nothing there. I think it was affected by the network change over. Anyway I wanted to see is anyone could remember what was suggested for a glow in the dark cake? What would glow in a black light? I think that there was something about baking soda and another one, each that would glow a different color in a black light. Thanks for helping me out again!

I've never heard of this before - sounds really interesting! Can't wait to hear (read) the answer.

Well, white definately glows! I made a cake for a Laser Tag birthday with dark chocolate fondant as a background and neon colored swirls, I wonder if that would work? (I used neon colors I found in the grocery store, but Americolor has an "electric" rainbow of colors to try).

So you are saying the cake will be under a black light? Would white frosting glow or white MMF?

ok, I'm not sure if you will find these helpful but I did a google search for UV reactive materials and foods and this is what I got, not may of them are edible and the ones that are don't go well with cake, like spinach.

I also found this instruction to make glowing jello

step 1Assemble Ingredients
You will need:
Jello packet (or no name gelatin dessert)
Tonic Water
Black Light (uv Light)
Pot (the kind you use to boil water)

step 2Make the Jello
What to do:
Boil 1 cup of Tonic water
Pour boiling tonic water into a jello mould or bowl,
Sprinkle in Jello powder while mixing the hot tonic water, stir until all of the powder is dissolved
Add 2 tbs of sugar to sweeten (if desired)
Add 1 Cup of cold tonic water and mix briefly (1 or two stirs)
Put in fridge for 2 hours

When the jello has set you can take it out and it will glow under a black light.
This is due to the quinine in the tonic water (the stuff that makes it bitter)

I also decorationdone with "glow sticks"., and the bending necklaces and bracelets, as well as glowing ice cubes. You know, the "crack and shake" things. Then, no blacklight needed. I would double check the customers meaning of "glow in the dark" to be sure a blacklight was available.
