ISO sparkling sugar and edible glitter (for a cake)

The Oracle Sep 9, 2010 02:43 PM

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!

    I believe Sur La Table has it.

    But I'm certain Surfas in Culver City does.

          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.

              Try deCroupet's Cake Sisters in Arcadia. it's on Huntington Drive near Santa Anita and as a bonus you can stop in at Claro's next door!

              I'm sure they would be happy to give you some suggestions as well
