    Delicious looking! Where did you find edible glitter topping if you don’t mind my asking?

    No idea beth, they were favours at the wedding I attended at the weekend. I can ask Alan or Stuart when they get back!

    How do you KNOW the glitter is edible? Something that shiny can’t be good for you.

    Sorry Peggy, none left!

    And Chris, that’s a very good point. I ate one on Monday and no side effects yet but I haven’t checked to see if the glitter “passed” (and I’m not gonna!)

    Modern-day silver balls. Remember those on cakes in the 70s and 80s? Specialist cake decorating shops (and online suppliers of such stuff) sell edible glitter. And balls.

    I can’t remember what camera you’re using Gordon? I’m only asking as mine is practically dead and, despite reading almost everything on the subject, and asking Those Who Know, I am still totally undecided about what to get.

    I hope not Lesley, fairy cakes have “wings”! (like on the left of this picture, yes yes, it’s bad to steal bandwidth but I can’t leave this wrong unrighted!!)

    They are definitely cup cakes.

    End of.

    As the supplier of said cakes (and I still can’t believe I never got to eat one!) it was “Disco White Hologram Edible Glitter”. So hopefully you can all sleep easy now.
    Unless you never got to try one.
