Edible Glitter

Some of you may have noticed that on both the Mardi Gras chocolatey cupcakes, and Sam’s Valentine’s Day carrot cake cupcakes they had edible glitter on them.

This is a ridiculously simple way to decorate your cupcakes.

(Whenever I see primary colors I sing the primary color song in my head.
It basically just goes, “Primary colors: They are red, yellow, blueeeeee”
Over and over.)

All you need is:

1/4 cup sugar (32 g)
Food Colouring

(In case you didn’t remember- here’s a snap of the Mardi Gras cupcakes)

Put your sugar into a bowl, add a few drops of food colouring (one at a time) until your sugar has reached your desired colour.   Now just blast that in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds just to take any remaining moisture out.

You can now glitterize everything you eat.  Savoury food? Do it with salt!
