Can someone tell me how to get this glittery effect on my cupcakes?
looks like white (holographic) edible glitter. Any edible glitter you like would do the trick.
Yup, edible glitter just sprinkle it on and Taaada!
it could be the edible glitter, but really to me, it looks like regular glitter. I would never ever use regular glitter on a cake or cookie but I do know one decorator, I used to work with, who had no problem sprinkling craft glitter onto cakes!
Looks like edible pixie dust to me
I think it may be disco dust.
I second the opinion. Disco Dust!
I've never heard of disco dust. What's the difference between disco dust and edible glitter?
MadameRaz - I bought some glitter from a lady once who said to me "this is not edible, but it's non toxic. Edible means your body can process it as food, non-toxic means you'll have glitter in your poo". lol!
Why don't you contact the baker and ask?
I just bought some disco dust and it looks JUST like regular glitter.
It looks like disco dust to me too. Disco dust shouldn't be put on the edible part of a cupcake or cake. It should only be put on non-edible decorations. At least this is my understanding. I believe that disco dust is a very finely ground plastic, and while it is non-toxic it is not supposed to be eaten. If I am wrong about this, someone please correct me. I believe if you go to a certain website that is always listed in the sidebar global..... then you will find it listed there as non-edible.
It is disco dust and from what I last heard it is edible BUT not FDA approved. There is much controversy over this product. I live in Ont. Canada and can only find it thru some suppliers because there are customs issues with it (due to the controversy I'm sure). I do use it though....prior to asking the clients permission(I tell them of the issue with the product ) and I always put on parts of the cake that can be taken off and therefore eating it is at the clients discretion.
when I bought it, it was listed as edible glitter. I had no problems with it.
If you can't find truly edible glitter, pearl dust or the spray pearl sheen would give you a similar effect without the worry of the food safe issues.
thank you!! I wouldn't want something that isn't recommended to eat so I think I'll try the luster dust and see how that goes
Thanks again for all your help
This is definately disco dust. It is also called pixie dust sometimes.
