I am working on a fund rasier for a group of fantastic kids. They want to have a Halloween party. With a black light and glow in the dark theme.
I want to make a great tier cake for them but I want it to glow. any ideas.
I want more color than just white under the black lights.

One of the decorators on Food Network's Extreme Cake Challenge did this, but I can't remember how she did it. She made an original superhero that glowed. It's driving me crazy! I know what she did, but can't remember!!

Maybe someone with total recall can help.

This might sound totally crazy but what I remember is Quinine. Does that sound right?

I know that Americolor has an "electric" color collection. They look very neon in regular light, maybe the would look glow-in-the dark with a black light? Just a thought

It is tonic water that has the stuff in it that makes it glow they add the tonic water to the piping gel that is what glow in the dark under a black light.

Thanks all who suggested what tyo use. I tried jello with tonic water. Looks great under black light but tastes like ****. I will keep trying.
