In the picture the woman seems to be holding what may be a black light... Maybe the outer ring is some kind of gel with something that glows in the black light...

I dont know much about the game though...

You might be right, didn't eve notice or think about that....
(in the game that gun basically shoots 2 holes where if you jump in one you come out the other.) But you could be onto something. I however would LOVE to figure out how to do with without help from the external gun. It should just glow! hehehe

Maybe a circle of colored cellophane with a string of mini-lights underneath?

Ditto.

Or a colored plastic circle cut from something.

I saw one of the cupcake shows where they brushed tonic water on the fondant covering the cupcakes. Tonic water contains quinine and glows in the dark. It worked for them, but I'd do a test run before trying it on the actual cake.

I think the lights underneath whatever it is are those LED lights in a flexible tube.

Tonic water, yes.

I saw a Food Network Challenge where the theme was ghosts and one of the guys had glowing foot prints. I think he added the tonic water (as VaBelle mentioned) to piping gel. It was a while ago so don't quote me on this, as CRS is creeping up on me.

Apparently it will glow, but you need a blacklight. I think they must've had a tube of lights.

What she said - you can see feed wire/cable in both photos.

From the pattern of the lights it does look like rope lighting covered with something. In the picture with the gun it looks like there is some type of electrical cord going to both cakes, I see it right between the cakes.

The portal gun is most lilely only used as a prop.

The quinine in tonic water will " glow in the dark " and that room is not very dark. It taste bitter and the only color you will get is greenish. Because of how bright the colors are im almost 100% sure they are LED lights. If you look carefully at the pictures you will see 2 rows of lights and how offset they are to one an other.. Otherwise there are some glow in the dark " paints " out there, you might recall seeing them in laser tag games, they come in various color but im sure they are not food safe.

And like the poster before me, there's a cable on the cake board.

It looks like they used rope lights under a clear plastic then added colored gel.
