How to Add Glitter to a Wedding Cake
Edible glitter is a godsend when it comes to making your wedding cake shine. These tiny flakes of fairy dust can be sprinkled over fresh buttercream or icing/gel brushed over harder finishes to create a spectacularly sparkly creation.
You can also use other products such as sanding sugar, lustre dust and edible metallic spray, each creating its own unique texture and shine.
