Can I press my fondant that will be used for cut-outs into sparkly sugar? I've never seen it done and I know I'll not be able to re-roll the extras, but my daughter really wants it sparkly -so I was thinking of making her birthday number sparkly.

sure you can. you should moisten it a little first so you get more sugar to stick.

You could always cut it out first, then add the sparkles! You won't waste any this way either! For my giraffe print purse cake, I molded my handle and bow, painted both with water (not dripping wet, just enough to cover it) then put them into a bowl of sparkly, red sugar. Looked fabulous when I was done!

You could use disco dust or pearl fondant glaze. I love these two products.

I do this for cakes and recently did it for a border. Cut out your numbers and let them set up for a few minutes then brush lightly with water and sprinkle with the sugar then let it dry. The sugar becomes part of the number and will stick even after it's totally dry. This way is a whole lot easier than trying to press the numbers into the sugar. HTH Cat

But..........the disco dust isn't edible. It's ground plastic.

The sugar is a better choice.
