Someone wants me to make their cake "sparkly" and "glittery".

What is the difference between shimmer dust, pearl dust and a ll the other edible dusts out there and how do you apply them to fondant??

Please help!

I use ultra white sparkle dust frequently and just dry brush it onto fresh fondant.

You could also use the dusts to "paint" your cake. Mix the dust with either a clear extract or vodka.

To make your cake "glittery" you could use edible glitter.

If you want real BLINGE, I use disco dust. Luv the way it looks. Easy blown on with bulb syringe or sprinkled. I also like lustre dust if just a shimmer is needed. Peggy Porchen uses a lot of disco dust or she calls it edible glitter to her work. See if this is what you are looking for.

Disco dust is now considered a no no. It is classed as non toxic, but not edible and should be removed from the cake prior to eating it
