How to make Edible Glitter

IMG_3303a Wedding Cake

As reference to the periscope I did a few weeks back I used Tylose powder to make edible glitter as it is fast and very easy to make. The scope gives you step by step instructions on how to make Gold and Bronze edible glitter and the recipes are below for you to try it out. I haven’t made Silver glitter yet but will post the recipe once I do.

When applying the glitter to the cake I found out that pipping gel works the best. First, heat the pipping gel in the microwave for about 10 seconds and by using a brush, apply a thick coat of the gel on the cake. Next, take a generous amount of glitter to the palm of your hand and then apply it to the cake from the bottom to the top.

Tylose Glitter Recipe

1 Cup Warm Water
1 ½ tsp Tylose Powder (I use the Wilton Tylose Powder)

Materials Needed
Baking Tray
Baking Foil (I use Pastry Portal Baking foils)
Measuring spoons

Bronze Glitter
1 Drop of Americolor Gel Chocolate Brown
1 Drop of Americolor Pearl Sheen Airbrush Color
1 ½ tsp Americolor Bronze Sheen Airbrush Color

Gold Glitter
2 Drops Americolor Pearl Sheen Airbrush Color
1 tsp Americolor Gold Sheen Airbrush Color


Sprinkle the Tylose powder into the lukewarm water, let it set for few minutes and then whisk it from time to time until the powder is dissolved. When you have a smooth glue like consistency (Gum Glue) add a color of your choice to the glue.

Set the oven temperature to 300 F (149 C) and take your mixture and pour it over the baking tray that is lined with a baking sheet (I have not tried this on parchment paper) and place it in the over for 45 mins – 1 hour. When the Tylose heats up you will see the mixture coming together on the tray and that is normal.

Gravity Defying Minion Cake

I always wanted to do a gravity defying Minion cake and when I was given the Minion cake by Rachel Jones in the Me, Myself, and I Collaboration it was the perfect opportunity for me to make this gravity defying cake.  My Minion is holding on to some balloons when a wind comes and sweeps him off the ground and he is terrified if he will ever come down.
