ISO sparkling sugar and edible glitter (for a cake)

Any idea where to find sparkling sugar and edible glitter? I'd like to use it on a wedding cake! Also - if you have any tips on usage, I'm all ears.

The closer to Pasadena the better!

Thank you!

  1. I believe Sur La Table has it.

    But I'm certain Surfas in Culver City does.

    1. Michaels craft store on Colorado in Pasadena.

      1. Jane's Cakes & Chocolates
        (818) 957-2511
        2331 Honolulu Ave, Montrose, CA

        they have a great selection. family run business, too.

        1. Surfas carries some luster dusts and edible glitter, and sanding sugar, but you're better off going to Gloria's Cake and Candy Supplies in West LA or Kake Kreations in Canoga Park.

          What kinds of tips on useage do you need? What specific effects are you trying to achieve with the glitter?

            I'm ordering a Fosselman's ice cream cake for my upcoming wedding and I wanted to figure out a way to make it sparkle (I'm getting a small round for cutting/pictures). It's a whipped cream frosting, so I'm not sure how the sparkles will work with that type of frosting.

            I ended up buying silver cake sparkles (Wilton's) from Michael's and clear sanding sugar from Sur La Table.

            I honestly don't know if this will work or not... if anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears!

              I would not use sanding sugar... unless you like crunchy whipped cream.

              I would get edible glitter. I know Surfas has it. It has almost no texture.

                Ah, good point - thank you! The good thing is that the round is really just for us and cutting. We'll have sheet cakes (un-sparkled) that will be served... So, it's really just for a visual effect more than anything.
