Relatively new to the cake decorating, was wondering if anyone can tell me how to add sparkle to fondant safely. I have seen cakes covered in fondant that appear to have a glitter effect. Any help on this would be much appreciated. Many thanks
I use the Wiltons pearl dust when I want a sparkle..It works beautifully and is food safe :)
Yes I use that too...but have seen cakes with sparkle inside the fondant not brushed over the surface.
Then...it was kneaded into the fondant maybe?
If you can post a photo, that would help us "diagnose" what you're seeing.
In some cases, it could be sanding sugar.
If it's Disco Dust, it renders the product INEDIBLE, unless the "sparkling" parts can be completely removed befor serving.
Ah..it imight just be sanding sugar it looks like sugar now I think about it. Does that just sit on top of the fondant or how do you apply it >
You can put a coating of piping gel, thinned corn syrup, or gum glue on the fondant and "pat" on/sprinkle on the sugar.
Thank you so much for your speedy reply x Will defo try this x
