Glow in the dark fondant

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Can I airbrush my fondant covered cake with tonic water to make it glow in the dark

post #2 of 10

hhhuuummm - might take more water and get too wet. It's the quinine that makes it glow. I wonder can you get from the pharmacist? Keep us informed whichever way you go.

Do you want *glow in the dark* or *UV reactive*?

 

Theses aren't necessarily the same thing.....

 

And, the amount of Tonic Water - or any UV reactive pigment -  required to get a UV Reaction will depend on the amount of UV Wattage and how close that wattage is to the cake.

Regular white fondant glows best under black lights. ... I tested this out and the tonic water really didn't have much of an effect like I was looking for. You can use those edible glow in the dark body paints though and they glow in the darkand are food safe. :)

What the?? I was fully expecting to see something bachelorette related. I can't comprehend what goes through people's minds! "Yes, I'd like a glow in the dark penis cake for my birthday". Kudos to you for pulling it off!

Yep. Edible glow in the dark body paints - those that I've seen are pretty much tinted piping gel.

The pigment load is pretty low, but they are a good choice.

 

Now, regular bodypaint..... that's a whole other thing.

I actually saw this on Cake Boss the other day. They used edible glow in the dark body paint! They tried tonic water and it just didn't glow enough. Hit up the adult toy store! icon_lol.gif
