You may have seen my post a couple of weeks ago, alerting you to some of the issues regarding so called 'edible' glitter.
(STOP PRESS!:Edible Glitter).
Well, until the FSA update the information regarding this product, it looks like I have found a great alternative... not exactly the same, but still creates some magic for your beautiful creations.
If you are looking for a gold or silver metallic finish on your dishes, this Dr Oetker Shimmer Spray is fantastic. It is edible and there don't seem to be any issues with it. It's available in the Baking section in all the major supermarkets.
Don't put it on before baking, spray lightly onto finished items. Make sure you protect your surfaces as it gets everywhere!
Hooray! We've got our sparkle back!
