I was thinking of using some of the design from my nieces dress to make her shower cake. I was wondering what to use to get the glitz from the crystals on to the cake. Other crystals that I have seen used on cakes seem to be large. Any suggestions? I'm going to try to link the pic of her dress.


I hope that works!

I would probably mold white chocolate in tiny gem molds, then coat with disco dust plus a teeny bit of Everclear to make it stick. Or you can use isomalt gems.

i like the idea of using white chocolate covered in glitter, i cant think of anything but just needed to say that is a very good idea

That'll work, but they'll need to be removed before serving because the disco dust isn't edible and is for decoration only.

To make them edible, you could use fine sanding sugar mixed with a bit of edible cake sparkles and FDA approved pearlized luster dust from sugarpaste.com
