how did you want to use it?
were you going to sprinkle it all over the cake or use it to enhance decorations or ?

I dampen the area I want the disco dust to be on. Take a dry paintbrush and dab the dry disco dust onto the dampened area. If you need the dust to be thicker LIGHTLY mist the already applied dust with vodka and dab on another layer of the disco dust. Repeat until it is the depth of color and sparkle you wish it to be. Some gp and fondant pieces can be dipped into the dust, but on buttercream I use the described method. icon_smile.gif

When I used it, I had to let it dry between coats to get it all covered with the glitter. I found it a bit difficult to work with, but I loved the outcome!
