I'm wondering if you couldn't use the colored cocoa butters that Chef Rubber sells -- I've seen bonbons done up with these colors airbrushed on them and they were every bit as spectacular. http://www.shopchefrubber.com/home.php?cat=1137



Based on her review, I wonder if they do use disco dust. That would explain how they don't taste very good. Disco dust has an awful texture, like eating tiny little shards of plastic. They get stuck in your teeth.

I know they say sanding sugars and luster dust, but I bet there is some disco dust in there too.

The ydont say luster dust tho, the say "cake colourings"

"but simply a food coloring dust that has absolutely no texture or taste to it."

So what do they mean food colouring dust? Could that be powder colour?

I saw that also. I think "food coloring dust "is disco dust. What other type of "dust" glitters and sparkles?

yea I dont see how any amount of pearl or luster dust could do that.


what about whatever cake sparkles are?

But i have a feeling it is disco dust

We have edible glitter here too - as well as disco dust. But the edible glitter comes in basic colours like orange, red, green and blue, and yellow I think. The texture is far too coarse to be the bedazzled effect shown, but maybe they are crushing it and mixing it with a pearl dust?

The other thing you can get here are chocolate pearl colours. For the life of me I can't tell what the difference is between those and luster dusts, but maybe its more 'edible', IYKWIM.

Its could be as simple as grinding it. Why would they need to mix with pearl dust at all?

I agree - I thought though that someone said it had a pearly sheen to it (?)

It does come off a little when handling the bonbons.



Pood; I just ordered some. Do you have an idea yet how the glitter was applied? Can't wait until I get mine

It looks like the edible glitter that is sold on this site.

Sadly, it does look the same, and only adds to the ongoing confusion.....I'm certain that this is fine plastic craft glitter that is classified as "non-toxic" here in the US.

In the UK, some things can be classified as "edible" that would never receive such a classification in the US. There are some gel/paste food colors in the UK that can't be used in the US and vice versa.

I don't know the particulars of how the definition of "edible" varies between the 2 countries, but it does.

I would suggest that if anyone has any "samples" of the bedazzled chocolates or the glitter discussed above, put some in a cup of water and see if the glitter dissolves. If it doesn't dissolve, it's plastic...........and in my part of the world, plastic isn't edible.

hmm, Ive never seen edible glitter that "glittery" before!

Could the UK have different rules on regular Disco dust?
