I would like to make these lovely cupcakes for a fundraiser event. Does anyone know where I can find edible glitter like this?

Thanks in advance! :)

IMO it looks like non-toxic glitter not edible glitter. I might be wrong, but it's what it looks like to me.

ALook into chef rubber, metallic gold edible glitter. I haven't used it personally but a lady on here says she did and really liked it.

AUnfortunately, the picture shows food covered with PLASTIC craft glitter. Looks nice, but you can't eat it.

There is no edible product that will give you that exact look, but sanding sugar mixed with gold airbrush color and some edible gold dust (crystal colors from sugarpaste.com) will work great.

Ditto, that looks like craft glitter, and I would not put that anywhere near food!! :o

AThere's just nothing that will give you that sheen thatis edible unfortunately. You could gild a thin strip of fondant or wafer paper with gold leaf, and punch out tiny little circles, but that would be nearly ridiculous.
