i'd use coconut for that -- chop it up first

Sparkling Sugar.  

Honestly, I'd NEVER use coconut.  Too many people hate coconut or are alergic to it.

I'd also go with coconut (unsweetened coconut shredded and packed). Never heard of a coconut allergy, but guess that's always a risk (as is milk and flour). But if you got an order for the cake you can check with the customer...

Otherwise, yes, like leah_s said, sugar, or maybe you could use crushed meringue, shredded white marshmallows, finely grated white chocolate, shredded waffle paper (don't know if that is the correct name, but you know the thin round, white waffles you get in church)....

You can buy communion wafers and grind them up, they're not considered to be holy until they're blessed right before communion, but why would you want to? They taste like butt. If you use wafer paper it's basically same butt-y flavor, and I wouldn't put that on the outside of a cake no matter how trendy it is unless you can remove it before serving it. I'm with Leah on what's on that cake being sanding sugar, but that's awfully crunchy too. The crunched-up meringue idea is pretty good but it  wouldn't be shiny. It's probably sanding sugar.

I would use white "sanding sugar".  I bought a small bottle at Walmart (though I'm not sure it was labeled as such).

Communion wafers! That's the name. Thanks.

Didn't mean to offend anyone, sorry. We can buy them in the supermarket and use them as cookie bases.

Anyway, she was asking what it could be on the cake she posted, not what tastes good. Was just thinking of edible white items...

I use sugar to make sand only, doesn't look like snow flakes to me. But if it needs to be shiny, she could mix shredded wafers or coconut with luster dust.

ASparkling sugar - not sanding sugar, really does sparkle.
