What kind of dust would create this snowy effect? I realize it's larger than luster dust/pearl dust, but not as big as cake sprinkles (wilton brand).

Anyone know? Thanks!

Actually if you get those Wilton cake sparkles (white) and then crush them up in a baggie with a rolling pin, they make a really pretty snow effect.

you can crush the wilton sparkles in your fingers and get them smaller.

I crush them in the jar using the handle of a spatula. icon_smile.gif

Put the wilton sparkles in a thumb pepper grinder......works PERFECT. thumbs_up.gif

Here is what mine looks like - I got it at BB&B for like 9 bucks.

That cake looks like disco dust to me too - just lightly dusted on.
