answered my own question found out how to make edible glitter here's the recipe
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of LIQUID food coloring
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.
Mix 1/4 cup of sugar with a 1/2 teaspoon of food coloring in a small bowl until the sugar is uniformly colored.
Spread the mixture out in an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for ten minutes. Allow your homemade glitter to cool before using it.
You may also store it in an air tight container for several months.
This glitter can be used for almost any type of project.
The disco dust is "NON TOXIC" but is not meant to be eaten. I learned that the hard way...AFTER I purchased the expensive disco dust! People still use it all the time, the place I bought it from puts that stuff all over their cakes.
I want to try this recipe! Thanks!
