My grandaughter wants the Wilton Castle for her 4th birthday. Here's the question: What can I use on fondant that will allow sugar sparkles to stick so that they seem like they are glittering?

I GUESS I READ THIS ? WRONG DO YOU WANT TO PUT SPARKLES OVER THE WHOLE CAKE? iF YOU ARE USING FONDANT WHY NOT JUST USE LUSTER DUST? IF YOU ARE PUTTING IT ON THE WHOLE CAKE ROYAL ICING WILL NOT WORK USE PIPING GEL OR CORN SYRUP.

I'm sorry - I should have been more specific - the turrets are either iced or use fondant to cover them. I want to use fondant and want to sprinkle sugar on them to make them sparkle. Didn't know which product to use that wouldn't break down the fondant and would dry after I put the sugar on.

If you use piping gel, the sugar will stick on very nicely and it's clear so you won't be able to see anything. That is what a lot of others have used to get sand to stick on beach cakes as well. I'm not sure what other options there may be. HTH

I misted my turrets with water and then rolled in sugar
