I made a bunch of isomalt diamonds to use on a wedding cake.  I have used them on one other cake but instead of being sparkly, they are clear so they don't really show up.  I read one suggestion of painting the backs of them with silver luster dust but that did not do a bit of good.  I have seen individual sparkly diamond looking things on wedding cakes but I don't know how they would get them that way using isomalt.  Is it possible that people are using individual ones on cakes and they are non-edible?   That would be scary to me.

Luster dust maybe?

  I used a brush and painted the diamonds with oil on this cake.  I ordered the clear edible diamond studs from Kitchen Krafts.
