Elvis on a Biscuit with Really Edible, Really Glittery Glitter!

I absolutely love glitter on cookies. When I first started out, disco dust (and glitters like it, such as this) was still being sold as 'edible' and I happily used it (and ate it) in large quantities. Then The Authorities (in the UK) realised that it was, strictly speaking, not an edible product, as it is not digested and has no nutritional value, and therefore couldn't be sold as such.

So all the wonderful, glittery products got relisted as 'non-toxic', suitable to be used near food but not in it. Since I'm not about to ask customers to scrape their cookies before eating them, I've pretty much given up on it, except for personal use.

Since then, there have been a number of products come onto the market sold as 'edible glitter'. Most of my local supermarkets carry something of the sort - mostly ground rice mixed with lustre dust, like this from Waitrose/Ocado. Sprinkle-able, but definitely not glitter. These musical notes were made a long, long time ago, with the old stuff.

But a few months ago I noticed a new Rainbow Dust 'edible glitter' product in Hobbycraft, in a whole range of colours. So I bought the black, purple and pale green to see what they're like. And I was pleasantly surprised!

The purple especially really is glittery! The picture above shows the new edible glitter on the left, compared to the 'non toxic' true glitter on the right. The flakes are larger than the tiny specks of disco dust, so the effect is a little prickly to look at and in texture (but not in the mouth!), but there's a real sparkle. Not all the colours are the same - the black is not quite as glittery, but still perfectly useable, some of the other colours on the shelf look a little too 'dusty' to glitter properly. (By the way, this glitter really is properly purple, it's just really difficult to photograph, and comes out blue!)

I drew the musical notation by hand with an edible ink pen, just as with these Valentine's Day cookies.

 It gives me hope for the future - it's got me all shook up! But that's enough conversation for now...

  6. 4 Tips that Can Improve Your Academic Performance Academic writing may not be everyone’s forte, but our current education system demands every student to have a certain level of writing skill. That is the reason why a lot of students need to rely on online experts for computer science assignment help.

    Write short and simple sentences:

But on the contrary, such practices often make the academic paper hard to understand. It is recommended to write short and simple sentences for better comprehension of the content and higher readability. If you are looking for academic writing services, you may not need to focus on the readability part. But it is good practice to write short sentences.

    Use sub-headings to segment the content:

It is easier for the readers to identify what the whole content is about just by reading the sub-headings. Also, the sub-headings give the readers some break before they start to learn about a different aspect of the topic. Also visit us for do my coursework, report writing help
