wow -- awesome -- what kind of food color? you rock!
It does NOT and I do mean absolutely not look like that. Not even close.
That post has been circulated for years. It's a photo of plastic, inedible glitter. If you use the "recipe", you'll get colored sugar. It won't look like that.
There are many ways to make fine edible glitter. http://americancakedecorating.com/diy-edible-glitter-tutorials/
That is exactly what it was, colored sugar, and at 350, it melted anyway lol one lady said she put luster dust in it to make it sparkle, and I was like well, the luster dust made it inedible so there's that!
I wasn't so sure about this working. I saw it on internet and was asking if anyone had tried it. Obviously it does not work since others have tried it before and sugar melted. Oh well it sounded too good to be true anyway!!!
well you still rock, remnant --
i didn't check the link that was kindly offered above but gum arabic + food color + drying time = edible glitter
but this recipe of sugar + food color does make a sparkly sugar that can be applied
I tried the edible glitter from Kara Andretta. It was relatively easy to make, but kind of messy when you're chopping it up. I didn't color it as it was just an experiment, and it was glittery.
Um, those jars in the first pic look like Disco Dust, which is plastic.
Mbalaska, yours looks just like the flakes I got from Wilton that I use on my pme snowflakes.
gscout73, I bought those once also. Home made is much cheaper in cost, but much more time spent in labor. And of course you know exactly what you have put in your homemade recipes, if that's a concern. She said in her tutorial that she makes tons of it and stores it, so it probably saves her a lot of money in the end.
