I am going to do a 10 inch tiered cake & the lady wants it to have glitter all over it. On the #'s & stars that will be poking out of the top I think I should use glitter because it is more textured......But for the whole cake she wants silver glitter. Should I use glitter, luster or sparkle dust or sanding sugar. Which would look better and taste the best?

Also if anyone could tell me about how much silver I would need for the cake 10in (double) on bottom & 8in (double) on top. I would truly appreciate it. This will be my 1st time with wish me luck!

Thanks in advance you guys are great icon_smile.gif

I definately suggest luster or sparkle dust. It is very, very fine; put it in a salt shaker or fine strainer. Or aqpply w/a dry paint brush like a fat round makeup brush.

You may have to use glitter if she wants it all over the cake and if its buttercream, i dont think you will be able to put the dust on it but I could be wrong..I do know if its fondant you can always paint dust onto the cake. HTH
