Does anyone out there know where I can buy a large container of edible glitter? I recently bought Peggy Porchen's book Pretty Party Cakes (beautiful stuff in there!).
In one photo, she was pouring glitter from a large round container. I am used to buying tiny little pots of it. I tried her suppliers in the UK listed in the back of the book, but they only sell in the tiny containers!!!!
Help! anyone out there- I have a million and one snowflake cookies for Feb that need lots of glitter!!

She may have combined a bunch of little pots into one larger pot for easier handling? I just ordered a 5 oz jar of disco dust from su ga r cra ft. com. I know most people hate those guys, but I order from them frequently, and have never had probems.

I buy 4 oz containers of edible glitter from United Bakers in Kansas City, MO. I roll it out very fine then use a large salt type shaker to sprinkle it over my cakes.

country kitchen (CK Products) sells it. I, too buy it in big (8 oz, I think) containers.

Chef Rubber in Vegas has a good selection of colors in the large jars.
