Fun Sparkles For Cakes And Cookies
Who said you can't eat glitter? We're not advising you start eating the sparkles you buy at Michaels, but why not make a few batches of edible glitter instead?
This easy DIY edible sugar glitter is the perfect way to add some serious sparkle to your drab desserts. Made from two ingredients, it's easy and perfect for just about any occasion.
Divide sugar into two bowls & add dye
Place 1/4 cup of sugar into two shallow bowls. Add 1/2 tablespoon of colored liquid dye to each bowl of sugar.
Stir the dye into the sugar with a fork or spoon, ensuring all of the sugar is evenly coated. Repeat with all of your colors (we did green and blue).
Spread on a baking sheet & bake
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the colored sugar on the parchment paper.
Bake for about 8-10 minutes, breaking up the chunks halfway through. Pour glitter into jars or bowls and use!
