Has anyone put tiny lights in a cake to make it sparkle when the lights are dimmed or turned off?

What kind of lights and where can I get them?

Also saw on Food Network Cake Challenge one time they painted the cake with some substance and caused it to glow in the dark?

Anybody knows about this?

LED lights or short xmas strings, depending on what you are going for. I have little individual LEd lights that I get directly from the supllier, but you might want to look in the flower section (floral lights), or wedding supply shops, even online. Some are also called balloon lights. just type in mini LED light into the google search, LED, because they don't get hot

The "Save On Crafts" website has tons of neat little tiny battery powered and corded lights and that site.

Just do a google search...I'm pretty sure if I post the link, they'll block it.

I've lights in cakes over the years. Cake or Pfiel and Holing had light wired in gumpaste flower sprays. I've added light to stairs and floral wreaths around cakes. I've bought some of the lights also from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks Kitagrl, I found that website yesterday and they do have some cool stuff. Will look at the other suggested websites as well.
