Hey everyone I am making a princess dress cake for my niece's 6th birthday this Friday and I was wondering how I can get the fondant to look really glittery? The birthday girl said she wants it to be "VERY sparkly" lol. Thanks for all the help icon_biggrin.gif

Wellllllll icon_sad.gif
there is a product out there called "Disco dust' that many decorators have used .... BUT....... know that it is finely ground plastic... not recommended for use on something that is to be eaten - expecially for a child - who wants it 'really glittery'.

These glitters will give some sparkle:

Another alternative would be coarse sanding sugar used to decorate cookies. There are two grain sizes and the clear color sugar can sparkle like diamonds.


Look at the wedding cake in my pics. If you think she wants this kind of sparkle let me know. icon_smile.gif
