What is the sparkle on these cake pops?  Disco dust?    How would that be applied to an entire cake pop?  I have a customer wanting 400 pops that are covered entirely.

if you post it to your gallery then you can copy & paste 

when you post to your gallery -- just say it's not your work in the description 

or you can post a link to it

but remember that disco dust is not edible it's made of plastic -- even though many people use it as edible and many more people eat it -- it's not food --

but what you would do when using an edible glitter is hold the pop upside down by the stick and *sprinkle then keep sprinkling as you turn it right side up -- charge a lot for 400 of those --

*or dip a dry art brush in the glitter and flick it on the pop with your thumb

Like K8memphis points out, it is NOT edible, only non-toxic.  Search on you tube "edible gelatin disco dust". I saw a video awhile back where they made colored gelatin sheets (or buy premade), let it set up & put it in a coffee grinder a couple of times to make it very fine. The result was VERY close to disco dust, very glittery. HTH

As for gelatine - please ask your customer if they're okay with 400 meat-covered cake pops......

there's also edible glitter made from gum arabic but it's more of a flake than so ultra fine -- you can make it or buy it -- and it goes on dry surfaces better -- looks better -- dissolves a little otherwise
