pixie, disco or sparkle?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Ok, I know the difference between these and luster dust, but what is the difference betweeen all the dusts that are NOT luster dusts? I recently bought some sparkle dust/mystical dust from sugarcraft, but that's the only one I have....so far. icon_biggrin.gif I've read through the whole stickied thread and I'm still a little unclear on it. And what do you typically use them for?

Thanks!

I'm curious too. I have the luster dust, and have used it, and I have the sparkle dust, but have never used that. Not sure what to use it on. Flowers??? I am really curious about the pixie dust. I think the difference with that is you sprinkle it on your finished cake, as opposed to mixing it with alcohol and spraying it on your cake.

BTW, where are you getting your pixie dust?? I have only seen it on cakesbysam.com.

I have found and love the DISCO DUST..that's like edible glitter.

I have used it on my red corset cake and the bed cake..if you see the "sparkly" stuff on them.

I have used it in my PREVAL sprayer..( oh yes..goodness that whole TERRIBLE FOR YOU CHICKEN LITTLE THREAD>...lol..Please, please...let's not start that debate again..I pray you!! ) and some Everclear and I LOVE, LOVE the way it looks..

I have used it on some of the "other" cakes but that is the "secret" gallery..lol

it's a bottle with a propellant...you fill the bottle with a mix of your medium and screw the bottle onto the bottom of the propellant and spray your surface...

there has been many a heated thread about the "FOOD QUALITY" of the product.

It can be found at the paint section of your hardware stores and it's less than 4 bucks! you can find their website...and it explains better.

Big discussion about these dusts here: http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-54059.html

Personally, I LOVE disco and pixie dusts (they are the same).

So, is sparkle dust the same thing as disco and pixie dusts?

Risque, how did you apply the disco dust to your corset cake? The finish on it is so smooth!

Nope. Pixie and Disco dusts look just like real glitter. Sparkle dust is is like luster dust with a higher sparkle to it.

Missyek, the sparkle dust that I bought from sugarcraft has a larger grain size than regular luster dust, but they also call it mystical dust on their site... Maybe I need to order some more to check out the differences myself??
