How could I create sparkles inside a cake?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I'm looking for a way to create fairly bright sparkles inside a cake, preferably within the batter, but within the frosting would be great, too.

 

Thanks so much!

Glitter is not food safe so that is out.
You could try disco dust but don't think it would show up.

There is a newish sparkle dust on the market that is stunning.
I used some for a bday cake a few months ago (Frozen theme) .....
As I was not sure if it was toxic I only dusted the gumpaste parts.
For the rest (we eat our fondant) I used a sanding sugar that sparkled.
Don't know if it would melt on reg icing.

Let me know what you ended up with....

I just did a quick google search and came up with a lot of results. This seems to have the widest range of colors, but there were many options. If this isn't what you're looking for, just type edible glitter into your search engine. Good luck.

Yes edible glitter has been available for some time.
Works great on the exterior of cakes , cookies, ice cream....
The OP wants to mix in with the batter and buttercream.
When this glitter ( deco sugar) touches moisture (and heat of the oven) the shine will dissipate and you are left with colored sugar.
Kinda like sprinkles.
