I'm planning my daughter's birthday cake and need turquoise non pareils. The problem is I live in Australia and they don't seem to exist! 

Her birthday isn't until May and I wanted to do a small 2 tier ocean inspired cake - very girly - so I'm doing the bottom tier in buttercream using the petal effect in pink, turquoise and white then the second tier I wanted to cover in pink, turquoise and white non pareils. Then have pearls at the base of the top tier and a sea inspired crown with pink jelly jewels in it on top. And, randomly, it will also have a fondant unicorn and a flamingo on the cake too :) It's very 'her' - lol!!! 

 

BUT I can't find any turquoise non pareils!! Maybe I could do it in sanding sugar instead because I can make that myself? Or do the turquoise non pareils actually exist somewhere and I just can't find them! 

 

Thanks in advance for any help :)

Never mind!! I've been searching online all morning and couldn't find anything, and as soon as I posted this I found a seller on easy who ships to Australia and does all sorts of amazing colours!

Now I've found edible glitter. It says it's 'truly edible' not just non toxic. Hmmm….maybe I could do a glittery top tier. Or would that taste gross? I haven't used it before.

The glitter is this stuff. Thoughts? I think I'm hesitant to use it exclusively, but maybe a little mixed in with the non pareils would be pretty?
