My daughter turns 3 in 2 weeks and has only wanted one thing for her party - a Dora Disco. So of course I am going to make a Dora cake for her, but I would LOVE to add a small disco ball cake to reflect the
theme. I will make a mini ball cake, frost it, and then was thinking of making little edible mirror squares and basically mosaicing the ball to make it a disco ball.
I could just colour small squares silver and dust with silver disco dust, but I was wondering if there is any technique, say with a sugar "glass" painted in a high glossy silver, to make an edible mirror? Is there a glossy enough silver paint readily available?
Thankyou for your help
I was thinking along the lines of pouring sugar tiles and then painting them silver, or laying the sugar tiles over silver painted fondant. I'm not sure you can make a "funtional" edible mirror. Unless you can find some edible matallic paper to laminate on the sugar...
Please let us know how this turns out... I'm interested and like your idea.
