Hi CC family.

I went to the cake store for some supplies for 2 cake orders next saturday, a birthday adn babyshower. I want to give the babyshower cake some shine/sparkly effect.

I've never ise either before. My question is which one would work best for a nice sparkly effect. the luster dust in silver looks so dull and grey in the jar i was wondering if it would actually sparkle when placd on the cake. Yhe disco dust was so pretty and sparkly I was wondering if it would overpower the cake. don't want to be blinding anyone at the shower.

Which would U use? Thanks

I use disco dust on all my kids cakes, and on as many adult cakes as I can work it into! Check my photos for the effect. I love it, not at all overpowering IMO!

ETA: here are some examples where you can see it in action the best icon_smile.gif!

I read on a blog yesterday that disco dust is non-toxic but it's not FDA approved and prolly shouldn't be eaten in large quantities. I don't know anything about Luster Dust as I've never used either before myself, but that might be something to think about. I bet your cake will look gorgeous no matter what you use...the cookies on this blog that used disco dust were gorgeous and very sparkly!

This is true, but really, how much of it would a person eat?! Disco dust goes a long way and I have no qualms about using it.

MikeRowesHunny is correct although I was adviced by the makers of disco dusts to not consume it. I think it is a personal preference. I personally wouldn't use anything that isn't FDA approved but a lot of proffesionals use non FDA approved dusts.
