I am making snowflakes for a wedding cake. What kind of luster/pixie dusts should I use? I want a pearl look with a very small but very sparkly glitter on top.

Also how do I apply this to fondant/gumpaste?

Thanks Everyone!

I've used Wilton pearl dust, it gives a better sparkle than the luster dusts I've tried. Good luck.

You could either use Crystal Colors Snowflake or PME Pearl Edible Luster Spray

You can apply clear piping gel to your fondant/gumpaste, and then sprinkle the dust on them.

I find that if I sprinkle the disco dust on them right away, while the gp is still fresh/wet, it sticks nicely.

I know of the perfect snowflake disco... PM me.

I used disco white hologram on the snowflakes on this cake (and I did what JenniferMI says - just applied the disco dust right after I cut them - it held on just fine!)
