How Do You Make Edible Glitter
For this tutorial, I am using the deep blue shine dust. My favorite color! It was actually an Elite gift for December because I wanted everyone to love it as much as I do, haha. So if youre an Elite member, youre in luck because you probably already have this dust!
If you dont have it, you can order it from Amazon
The basics of this recipe comes from my sheet gelatin recipe which is basically turning powdered gelatin into a sheet that kind of resembles plastic.
- Measure out 1/4 cup cold water into a shallow container
- Sprinkle in 5 teaspoons of knox gelatin powder
- Let gelatin absorb into the water for 5 minutes
- Heat for 30 seconds, stir and and another 15 seconds until fully melted. Dont overheat it.
- Skim off the white foam with a spoon and discard
- Just mix your melted gelatin with whatever metallics you would like. Dont have any trucolor? I have also made this glitter by combining a touch of food color and some super pearl dusts from the sugar art
- Pour the gelatin over the plastic wrap and let dry out overnight
- Break it up, put it in a food processor until its finely ground and voila! Edible metallic glitter
This dark blue edible glitter is perfect on our black textures wedding cake tutorial and adds that pop of sparkle that makes the sprinkles look extra moody and gorgeous!

Is It Safe To Eat Edible Glitter
There are a lot of products out there that claim to be edible but are just non-toxic. What does non-toxic means? Well imagine you ate a crayon.
Can you eat it? Yes
Will it kill you? No.
Will it taste good? Probably not.
Is it edible? Technically not.
See, when something is considered non-toxic, it just means it will pass through your body without harming you but you also do not get any nutrients from it so therefore, it is not a food.
Ok lets move on.

Is Disco Dust Edible
Disco dust commonly refers to a product that is considered to be non-toxic but not edible. You know what else is non-toxic? Actual real glitter. The plastic stuff you buy at the craft store literally is the same thing as disco dust. Do you really want to eat plastic? I didnt think so.
Just say no to disco dust unless youre putting it on a part of the cake that can be easily removed and is very clearly not meant to be eaten.
