Bakell FAQ - Understanding Decorating & Baking Dusts!

If you've ever seen shiny edible decorations on top of cakes or cupcakes, chances are they were created with luster dust.

Luster dust is a type of decorating powder used in cake and candy decorating to add color and sparkle to desserts. Luster dust comes in a wide variety of colors, but the most commonly used shades are gold and silver. Lets review and understand the different types of dusts:

Jewel Dusts (Edible Food Grade) - Are a very potent and shiny edible dust, very similar to Disco dusts, but with a slightly silkier texture: Click HERE to see all Jewel Dust Colors!

Luster Dusts (Edible Food Grade) - Are a much finer powder than the Disco Dusts but still very shiny with brilliant pearlizer tones in each color shade, these are typically brushed on or mixed with a liquid and painted or airbrushed on as seen in our video shown below: Click HERE to see all Luster Dust Colors!
