I need to make a glow in the dark cake.  I looked up how to do it, but came across different ways.  If anyone has made a glow in the dark cake, please let me know how you did it or which way worked best.  Thank you.

I made one for an 80s party for my nephew. Fondant covered cake that I then brushed with some tonic water. It did glow under black light.

My customer wants it to look like the paint splatter cakes.  Do you think it would work if I did the "splatter" with candy melts and then brushed the tonic water on?

This is how she wants it to look.  Do you know if brushing the tonic water on it would work or would it also make the black glow and mess up the "look"?  I also have to make 75 cupcakes done in the cake colors.  I plan on dipping them in a mixture of jello and tonic water.

I figured it would be the splatter cake lol. If you brush or spray the tonic water on, it is going to make everything it touches glow. I don't think it would mess up the look at all. My cake looked great under the black light.

If you don't want the black to glow, the only thing I can think of is to hand paint the tonic water on to each candy melt splatter.

Thank you so much.  I've been doing cakes for almost 10 years and this is the first time I have been asked to do a glow in the dark one.
