I have noticed a few photos of cake pops that look like they have disco dust on them that look amazing!

How are they getting the dust to stick? Are they just brushing it over the cake pops once they are dry?

Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I was looking to order from ck p. and all the dust listings are super confusing. I wish it just said on what you can't eat "were selling this stuff you can't eat!" LOL

Does anyone know what I could use to get a similar effect? I want to make christmas cake pops colored red and green and put some kind of sheen on them if that makes sense?

Although I've never used it, there is something called edible glitter, available at numerous places on-line.

AI have read through a lot of these posts but haven't came across anything about Twinkle. Please tell me this is edible!

No, it isn't, just non toxic like disco dust.

AGsa carries twinkle dust and it says it's just like disco dust just smaller but that would mean that you can't eat it. I see this post is old but just in case someone comes across it they know that you shouldn't use twinkle dust either.

I really couldn't believe how these were food safe, they explain online it's sanding sugars mixed with coloring. I wanted to figure them out to 1. Serve at my wedding 2. Lol figure them out!

I ordered a sample pack the owner is lovely to work with, prices were very nice for the samples and they arrived in pristine condition! When I opened the box, they looked just like Disco Dust, beautiful, but how can these be food safe?! They looked like a mixture between disco dust and coordinating leaf (gold leaf with gold disco). When I spoke with the rep on the phone, she said it was the 'process' that was special hmmm....

They were obviously delicious, I still have some in my crisper. I will try to upload some deconstructed pictures and perhaps you can help me with the mystery. Needless to say, I can't imagine selling/serving something covered in glitter-however, not knowing is killing me!

It's not unheard of to find products out there that I know nothing about ;) I just can't figure these thing out! I'm. Sure the rep was being honest I just can't see how they get this brilliance with SS

AI'm in the UK and the only genuinely (commercially available) edible glitter I have found is by a company called Doric. It states clearly on the pot that it is edible and lists the ingredients (the main ones being rice and shellac). It's isn't as sparkly as real glitter (but is more sparkly than magic sparkles) but it does the job.

I can't believe that is NOT disco dust. Please post pics of them. I'm very interested to see them. Also how much was the sample pack and how many were in there?

Smckinney...Thanks for that link. I really wanted sparkle to some cupcakes I am doing but knew I couldn't use disco dust. If they found through the power of chemistry a process to take sugar, dye and some starch base to create the effects then great!! I am going to try to find more info on this product....

darnit! I thought they sold the dust. Nope...just the bon bons and pops

ADid you scrape some off and grind it between tour teeth? or poke at it with a knife? You should be able to get your answer then. I've gnawed on some dd before to prove it to someone that it wasn't going to dissolve and go away...lol

MBalaska Posted 30 Aug 2013 , 7:45am

Non-toxic.   kids crayons, sidewalk chalk, chewing gum & glue is non-toxic but does it belong on food? should it be eaten?.........hmm interesting subject.

BatterUpCake Posted 30 Aug 2013 , 9:04am

You mean I'm not supposed to eat sidewalk chalk?! icon_eek.gif
