it is tonic water that makes frosting "glow" blue in a black light. just dont add too much cause its bitter. one recipe i found is 1c. shortening  1 tsp clear vanilla extract, 6cups. powder sugar, 3/4 c. tonic water. if you color the frosting you wont see any other color under the black light but blue

There is a difference between Glow in the Dark and Black Light Reactive.

 

Check the FDA color list if there are any doubts.

 

Many Food Items are Black Light reacitve - such as tonic water.... and easy to determine if you have a hand-held UV bulb.

 

As far as the green glow in the dark - I highly doubt it is FDA.

 

I'm an experienced body painter - and DO NOT advise using body paint as a food color.

Non-Toxic vs Cosmetic vs Food are different category of pigment.

Yes glow in the dark frosting is possible. The frosting has about 5 T tonic water and the jello 1 C tonic water. After your frosted cupcakes are in the freezer for awhile and you have made your jello with tonic water you dip the cupcakes and return them to the freezer. They have to be dipped and frozen 4-6 times each, returning them to the freezer each time. Don't take the whole tray of cupcakes out of the freezer, do it one at a time. You will still need a black light to make them glow, but with the jello dipping you can get a lot of great colors. Google glow in the dark frosting for recipes avail. online.
