hhhuuummm - might take more water and get too wet. It's the quinine that makes it glow. I wonder can you get from the pharmacist? Keep us informed whichever way you go.

Do you want *glow in the dark* or *UV reactive*?

 

Theses aren't necessarily the same thing.....

 

And, the amount of Tonic Water - or any UV reactive pigment -  required to get a UV Reaction will depend on the amount of UV Wattage and how close that wattage is to the cake.

the cake is done I sprayed it yesterday 2 times and I will spray it once more today before delivery but since I don't have a black light I cant tell if it glows or not the party host will inform me later if it worked I hope it does

Regular white fondant glows best under black lights. ... I tested this out and the tonic water really didn't have much of an effect like I was looking for. You can use those edible glow in the dark body paints though and they glow in the darkand are food safe. :)

OK so it worked great after I airbrushed the cake I sprayed it with the tonic water about 4 separate times wait after each spray for it to dry and then sprayed it again I didn't get a picture because I didn't have a black light but the customer said it glowed thanks for your replies

penis cake with bar rings and beaded strap and of course cum coming out of the top the cake is French vanilla and yellow cake with white chocolate buttercream airbrushed tan coloring and airbrushed tonic water so it can glow in the dark

What the?? I was fully expecting to see something bachelorette related. I can't comprehend what goes through people's minds! "Yes, I'd like a glow in the dark penis cake for my birthday". Kudos to you for pulling it off!

Yep. Edible glow in the dark body paints - those that I've seen are pretty much tinted piping gel.

The pigment load is pretty low, but they are a good choice.

 

Now, regular bodypaint..... that's a whole other thing.

I actually saw this on Cake Boss the other day. They used edible glow in the dark body paint! They tried tonic water and it just didn't glow enough. Hit up the adult toy store! icon_lol.gif
