I have tried water, melting the chocolate a bit with the heat of my breath and neither gets the edible glitter to stick to the chocolate. If I look at it, it seems to fall off. Can I use sugar glue on chocolate and sprinkle the glitter on? Will it stay evn if a stiff breeze rolls by or am I just sol on this?

I have made numbers out of chocolate and 'glittered' them with no problem. What I do is pipe the outline in chocolate of my number (on a piece of parchment), fill it in and then immediately dump a bunch of glitter all over it, then pop it in the fridge. Once it is hard, you can pick up the number and use your parchment to dump the extra glitter back in the jar.

I'm using a shoe mold so this isn't possible, I don't think.

I think I have it! Sugar glue. I think this might be the answer but I'll let you know when it's dried and I try to move the shoe tomorrow. icon_smile.gif

Hello, try brushing on a thin layer of piping gel. Joni

The other day I was at a Baking supply shop and asked for clear piping gel - they looked at my like I was nuts. What we do have is coloured piping gel which comes in little 25ml tubes which most use to pipe text on a cake - not really in tubs or buckets where u can use it to brush on stuff like I've heard about here on cc.
So I agree, I would love to try the piping gel as I have the same problem, but does anyone know if its known as something else here? Or what substitute would work?

I'm from South Africa. Thanks!!

Sugar glue works! All I did was dissolve some gumpaste in water and brushed it on. It's slightly tacky his morning but it's not an issue.

I'm using Edible Glitter and it doesn't seem to melt when it touches the gum glue. Yeah!

Your shoe looks great. If you do this again you might want to try using sanding sugar. It is a very fine sugar and comes in many colors. Apply it to the chocolate just like you did the glitter, with piping gel. I bet it took a lot of glitter to cover tthat shoe.

Here is one place you can get it from. There are two molds. http://sweetwise.com/high-heel-shoe-side-a-d55a.html and http://sweetwise.com/high-heeled-shoe-side-b-d55b.html . There are other places but this is the quickest one I could locate. If the links do not come up, do a search for high heel shoe chocolate mold.
