Are you planning on serving the little shards of plastic to people as well? ;) You might want to rethink using something that's edible, because disco dust is plastic, if you didn't already know that.

AI was making my own bday cake.. And usually people dont eat the fondant anyway so i didnt think it would be an issue . I dont see any other glitter out their that would give the same affect as the disco dust

AYou're right, there isn't anything natural that gives that effect, [B]close[/B], but not exactly. If it's just for you, go for it I suppose.

AAnd just throw it on, really. Or spray a light mist of vodka or something with your airbrush and toss it on before it dries.

AI was going to just tell my friends to just not eat the fondant :/... I was figuring that much., too probably put some piping gel on the cake and than throw on the disco.., i just thought maybe their's an easier way without getting it all over the place....

you can brush it on, sophie--it kind of adheres--and if you fridge the cake even for ten, fifteen minutes then bring it out in the room it will probably have enough temperature difference to hold the disco dust on--a teeny bit of automatic condensation--


best to you
