Do you make your own edible glitter? I found a recipe for making it and i wondered whether to bother or not

I didn't know there was a recipe, can you share? I have always just purchased it, the small jars are around $1.99 here in my area.

Do you think you would add food coloring for colored glitter, then?

I've never used the gum arabic before so I don't know exactly what this is, but I have seen it for sale.
