What Are Edible Dusts & Glitters?

So What are Edible Bakell® Dusts & Glitters

Luster Dust, Petal Dust, Tinker Dust and other edible glitters & dusts we sell are a shimmery powder or glitter that can be added directly to your cakes, cupcakes, fondant, gum-paste, cookies, etc and add a beautiful shine with unique brilliant pearlized tones in each color shade!

Depending on the type of dust or glitter you are using, edible dusts & glitters can simply be brushed onto molded candies, fondant, and gum paste with a dry brush. If you want a more even application and more intense color, certain dusts like our Luster Dust can be mixed with alcohol (vodka is recommended) or an alcohol-based extract like lemon extract. It only takes a small amount of liquid, so start with a few drops and mix until you get a consistency you like. Do not try mixing luster dust with water, as it is not water soluble and you will get a sticky mess. For stronger effects, you can paint on multiple coats of luster dust, just be sure to let each layer dry in between applications. Edible dust can also be mixed with alcohol and used with a food-grade airbrushing machine, like this one - click here
