I am making a cake for my step daughter's birthday and her mom wants it to look like this pic. My question is how do I make a silvery, sparkly background? All help will be greatly appreciated!!

Edible glitter made from gum arabic. Use to decorate cakes, cookies, ice cream and other food items. May be crushed to create a fine glitter.631013 Comes in a variety of colors including the silver! I just ordered more from Chef Rubber today and it will be here on Thursday! here is a link that lists all of the colors....http://www.shopchefrubber.com/product.php?productid=7070&quantity=1
Local cake shops should carry the same type glitter in different brands. I live out in the boonies....closest cake shop is about 120 miles away so online ordering is the best thing since sliced bread!

I have a sparkly cake in my photos of Barbie. If this is what your are looking for I bought disco dust and used an edible sugar glue to make it stick.

Take 1/4 tsp of tylose powder mixed with 2 TBSP. of warm water. Stir and leave overnight.

Paint it carefully then sprinkle the disco dust on. I bought the tylose and disco dust from country kitchens sweetarts.
