Does anyone no how to make a cake that glows in the dark or in blacklight? I'm having a Blacklight party for my daughter.

I know that quinine (an ingredient in tonic water) will glow in black light... I've never worked with it, but I'm guessing that you apply it (paint or airbrushing) on the surface? May take some experimenting.

Someone else made frosting using quinine water in this thread:

I have no idea, but I think that's just the neatest idea I've heard in a while!

Disco dusts glow when a black light is put on them.
I made this for my neice's party. I hope the pic works and it looked even better in person.
My EI printer died so I drew on the icing sheets, backed with gumpaste and put dust on some of the areas. The stars you see were smothered in dusts and really showed the glow well. icon_smile.gif

Hope this helps,
