Spray on glitter or sparkle

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
So sorry to keep bugging you all with my questions.

I have a request to have a cookie "gittery" and I don't know if painted on luster dust will get the effect she's looking for. Have any of you heard of or used a spray on edible glitter? I thought I heard of Ace of Cakes using it or some other food show. Does it exist? Was I imagining it? Where can I get it? Are there certain brands?

Thanks!

PME makes a luster dust in a spray can. It has that glittery effect.

disco dust or pixie dust is what you're looking for

Here is a link to some:

here are some cookies I did recently w/ it on them (I only sprinkled a tiny bit while the icing was wet)

and look at this cake topper, it was liberally dusted with the pixie dust!

oh, well if you want just a sheen there is pearl airbrush spray that will give an overall satiny sheen/sparkle to fondant........but if you want glitter.......pixie/disco dust is the way to go!

So on the Labyrinth cookie, she wants sparkles in the background, like on top of the flooded part, and then the word and stars and vines to be all over that. I have mixed vodka and luster dust before but I never liked the effect, it was always streaky or too thick in one part and hardly any in another part. I love the sparkles on your #3 cookies though, that's exactly what I was looking for. And you just sprinkle it on? Thanks!

yep, just literally dipped my fingertip into the sparkles and sprinkled a touch onto the wet icing.

I am needing the same thing, but mine is for a cake. I am doing a baby shower cake and they want sparkle. I had a look at that website you posted KHalstead and they have some awesome stuff. I'm just wondering what would be best for a cake, the pixie dust or the luster spray. I'm only a beginner cake decorator so I need ease of application too. How easy would it be to put the pixie dust on a buttercream iced cake? I think the spray would be easy, but I like the look of the pixie dust. Any ideas would be great of how I can make this cake sparkle.

Thanks

I agree with the disco dust.

Just did some recently and it doesn't take much to bring out the sparkle!

I just dipped a grapefruit spoon in the jar tapped off the excess and used what clinged to the spoon over my cookies! It gives off such a beautiful sparkle in the sun or under any type of light.

They really do look beautiful. Wow, it's amazing what a diff a little of that stuff can make.

I've had the same streaky appearance mixing pearl dust with vodka and painting it on. What fixes that is sponging on the dust/vodka mix and making sure the mix has the consistency of paint (a lot of dust, a little vodka).

I also dry brush the dust onto cakes and cookies. I get a great effect and I don't seem to waste as much dust.

Here is the difference between the pixie dust and spraying the luster........the pixie dust looks like granuals of glitter (as you saw on the other 2 pics. I posted) the luster spray gives an overall sheen to the piece. Here are some cookies with pearl spray on them so you can see the difference HTH

Thank you KHalstead for posting what the spray looks like. Your cookies are beautiful. Maybe if I have enough spray left I'll make some nice easter cookies like that icon_smile.gif I've ordered some of both and hoping they will be here this week for my cake this weekend. I think I will try the spray overall and use the pixie dust on the decorations. That should be enough 'sparkle' for them I hope.
