While preparing her OSSAS 2013 cake, Angela wanted to add sparkle while adhering to the rule of “no disco dust”. She created a method for making her own sparkle dust, using the approved ingredients of luster dust and gumtex. Keep reading for her simple, yet beautiful glitter dust method.
Tools and Materials:
2 tablespoons Gumtex
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon luster dust
Mix all ingredients into a paste.
Spread paste evenly on a silpat mat and bake 5 minutes at 325 F, until entire surface is dry.
Removed dried mixture from silpat mat.
Press pieces through a sieve.
Apply dry dust to your project, using thinned royal icing to stick to your cake.
This is so clever and I love that it's food safe. Thank you!
Thank you for sharing - any substitutes for gum tex?
Very clever! Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for experimenting and sharing your recipe with us. That is wonderful.
This recipe has been around for at least 7 years.
So clever! Love this, thanks for sharing!
Shanter - bitter much? Wow. Then why didn't YOU make a cool tutorial and share it with us? Who cares if it already existed, this was very nice of her to lay out the photos, etc. I am grateful for those who share their techniques. I live in Mexico and don't speak Spanish completely, so online tutorials are all I have.
Thanks for this, do you know what ingredients you would use if it's to be made in the Uk? Many thanks Jillian
