Disco Dust instructions say to add them to icing that is wet so maybe if you steam the "lips" first and then add the dust? That may help it adhere better. Good luck, can't wait to see it!

I brushed egg whites onto the surface of this fondant covered cake and then sprinkled the disco dust. the egg whites sealed it onto the cake so that it couldn't just blow off or even be rubbed off. Hope that makes sense
