How to Make Silver & Gold Shimmery Candy Apples - if you want to make candy apples that really shine, check out all the tips in this post for glittery, shimmery, shiny, metallic apples!
Ever since I wrote about how to make candy apples any color, I've received dozens of questions about how to make silver & gold candy apples Well, after some experimenting, I thought I'd share a few different ways to make your apples really shine!
All of these apples start with using my basic recipe here - except use only the Americolor white gel coloring, not the pink or orange or blue or purple. This is what your apples will look like after dipping:
I let them harden and from there, I tried a few different methods to get shiny, shimmery, metallic apples and I'll show you some pics of each...
For these first apples, I simply sprayed the white candy apple with Wilton Silver Color Mist Spray. The key to this is to go light!! If you spray on too much at once, it'll start to run! Overall - this silver apple was the easiest to eat, there were no controversial ingredients and the apples were pretty!
I couldn't capture it perfectly in the picture but they really were shimmery and shiny and the metallic silver really came out well!
Sadly the Wilton Gold Mist Spray didn't turn out as shimmery. They weren't bad - they just weren't as "gold" as I'd have preferred!
Next, I thought I'd use some gold and silver sugar that I had on my sprinkles shelf. I've used the silver on cake pops before (you can see the pink & silver cake pops here), but I wasn't sure how it would work on the apples.
For these apples, again I started with white apples and let them harden, then I gave them a light mist of the Wilton Color Mist (in silver and gold respectively) and let that dry. You could probably skip that step, but I just thought it would keep from a lot of white shining through.
After they were dry, I painted over them with corn syrup, then I sprinkled them in the gold and silver sugar try to get as much coverage as possible. In the end I sprayed them with a little more of the Wilton Color Mist (again, you could skip this if you don't have any).
I wondered how it would be to eat these, so I gave it a try! I've already established that these candy apples are hard (as they should be!!), and these just had a little extra texture with the sugar. The sugar doesn't really make them any harder... just crunchier?!
And last... my most controversial apples. Who knew candy apples could be controversial!?! I first posted some of these glittery apples back on the 4th of July and since then, I've gotten quite a few nasty and opinionated emails and comments.
People... if you don't like what I write or say, don't read it. Or don't make the apples. Or just keep your opinions to yourself. Don't send me nasty emails and comments and turn into the "food police" on me ... because I'll just delete you/them.
My Mama always said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all and my Mama is a very wise woman.
So here goes... the controversial apples.
For these apples, I covered them in white candy, then painted them with corn syrup and then I sprinkled them with Disco Dust.
Disco dust is the culprit that got me in so much trouble. Here's what the folks over at CK Products say about Disco Dust:
An extra fine glitter with lots of sparkle. 5 grams. Developed for the craft industry and often used on display cakes, Disco Dusts contain only ingredients that are NON-TOXIC. These dusts are not FDA approved. They are not a food product and should not be considered as such.
Yes, I know disco dust is not "food". Yes, I know it's not FDA approved. No, I would not sell them as edible. Yes, I did feed them to my kids once.
There, I said it. Crayons are also not food and not toxic. But if I saw a kid eat one (and mine have!!), I would not flip out and go all "food police" on someone. We don't eat them daily or even monthly or heck... even yearly. But I made them once upon a time and we ate them. And they were good. And that tiny amount of glitter did not hurt any of us.
For these apples, I used American Gold Disco Dust and then had blue, silver and red disco dust for the 4th of July ones. And in my opinion... they were the very, most, prettiest of all the apples! Yep - I liked them best!!
Having said that, if you want to do something similar that is deemed completely safe and edible by the FDA, I have since found this Silver Edible Glitter. I have not bought this product or tried it, but it looks pretty! I don't know if it comes in other colors either... but here's the silver.
Just for kicks - I'll tell you what didn't work for me... and that's mixing luster dust with vodka and trying to paint that on. Super Gold Luster Dust gives such beautiful intense color when painted on fondant (like on this Gold themed wedding cake, but when I tried it on the apples, I got this:
I actually think they were very pretty in their own way, almost like a marbled-gold thing going on, but that wasn't the look I was really going for! I would've kept trying different methods to see if I could find a way to make the luster dust work, but I ran out of apples! Oh the problems of being a food blogger!
Anyway - so there you go... a few different ideas to make beautiful shimmery, shiny, metallic candy apples! Please leave me a comment and let me know if you try any of them!
As always, if you have any questions, please leave me a comment. If you have questions about candy apples in general, go see my original post here and the hundreds of comments... I bet you'll find your answer!
Lol about the foodie police. Seriously, i cant believe how people feel the need to sprout off about every little thing. Sorry you got heat on the 4th july apples. You're right though they are gorgeous! Personally candy apples are great decorations but the idea of eating them gives me the shivers. Lets just say this girl had braces once apon a time and knocked off one too many bits of metal before my dentist went psycho at me... 30 years later and I still need to cut up my fruit. Love your blog, keep doing what you do! Warm wishes from Perth Australia x
I think the controversial apples are Beautiful, I think they will make great favors for our family reunion which is always 4th of July weekend.
Thank you!! They're always a hit when I make them 🙂
I need help. In making a successful hard candy apple
Forget the food police people ur apples looks nice...people can take or leave what they want, so be..keep being creative imma try a few of ur ideas...
I think they are beautiful. I would eat them. I'm sure if you check the labels of the food you do eat the ingredients are much worse.
Well how dare you??? I would NEVER feed my children stuff like that. Of course, I don't cook very much for my kids either. 😉 Phooey on the Negative Nancys.
how dare u ! its her decision of what she feeds her kids and anyway u don't really cook for your kids /like it says on your comment , so don't go saying how dare you feed that to your kids. They are her KIDS.
Rose and I are buddies. She knows I was just picking with her She know I eat raw brownie batter when I can't sleep at night. And she knows I'd feed my kids garbage out of the can if it meant I didn't have to cook. She a great friend and a wonderful mom.
And FYI: This symbol 😉 means "just joking".
How dare you make jokes, Terry 😉 Can't wait to try these gorg apples!! Beauties!
I think that when people get snarky about other decorators designs or techniques.. that they are just being catty. Once they are done with you... they will move on to the next victim. It's just crazy. Customers can do their research and decide from there. Your stuff is beautiful!
when my children were small if I made a cake that needed writing or fine details I used " non toxic" felt tip pens my reckoning was the children put them in their mouths and came to no harm so the little they ate on a cake would also cause them no harm! The are both grown up now and healthy intelligent successful adults. People get too excited about stuff that really does not matter. If they don't want to eat something that's fine but stop imposing their choices on others we can all make up our own minds. Fab apples love them!!!
Thank you Denise!!
Hi how do you get rid of the bubbles? By the way.... I LOVE YOUR WORK
I haven’t figured out the secret to the bubbles yet but it seems like if I stir the candy until it stops bubbling as much, then dip the apples, they have less bubbles.
The trick to getting rid of bubbles is to dip the apples in boiling water for about 10 seconds! I usually dip them when they already have the stick in them so I know they are getting dipped evenly! Another baker told me that and it works for me every time!
Oooh, tell me more! Do you dip them, then dry them before dipping in candy? Can it be done ahead of time or immediately before dipping? I can't wait to try this!
I dip them, dry them with a paper towel and immediately dip them in the candy. Not sure if they can be dipped ahead of time. I would think not though. It gets all the wax off.the skin will most likely fade a little, but that's okay because it will be converted in candy! Attached is some I did a few weeks ago
What do you suggest for the gold edible paint.?
I love Edible Art Paints by Sweet Sticks. You can find them on Etsy here: http://tidd.ly/ca47b355
I am a food artists and I just love love love your glitter apples. I have made the color apples before and they came out perfectly! My question is, for the glitter apples, once you brush on the simple syrup do you let it dry and do you brush on the disco dust? I guess I need to know the best way to apply it. Oh and can I glitter bomb my colored apples or just the white ones? I did try scrolling through some comments, but none answered my question. Thanks in advance. You Rock!!!
I actually sprinkled on the disco dust while the syrup is still sticky/tacky so that the glitter sticks really well. I say you can add glitter to any color! I did some 4th of July ones here: July 4th Apples.
Did you wrap the apple after applying the glitter to the apple
Sorry, but I meant did the glitter stick to the wrapping?
Since I didn't wrap them, I'm not sure if it would or not.
I did not wrap these. They were made for my family.
LOL....I never knew that about luster dust oooops!!! thank goodness none of my customers or their kids have died yet, Before it was popular I printed a picture on edible paper from my ink printer (not edible ink) for my daughters birthday cake and we all ate it and we all lived, she ate dog poop as a baby so I a little ink ain't going to kill her....lol Thanks for the Apples they look so cool I want to try them for Christmas
"D They'd be beautiful for Christmas! Please share!
That's the same thing I just told my husband! We are doing some for any guests who come by for Christmas! I love the silver and gold! Thank you!
You mean I cant feed my kids crayons??? Well thats just ruined my day!! Jk. They are are super cute might make some as chrismassy table decorations. Hey might even let the kids eat them
Haha!! I think they'd be beautiful for Christmas!
Hi Rose, I love the "new" colors! One question, have you even tried coloring the apples spraypainting with amerimist colors? I was just wondering how they would turn out.
I'm sure they'd be beautiful!! That's a great idea!
Just thought that I share the link to the edible glitter i found after using the link you gave for the edible glitter in silver. They have them lots of colors.
As a mother of 5 girls and a grandmother of 15, I can honestly say a little bit of glitter isn't going to hurt anyone! FDA approved or not! We used a lot of glitter when my girls were growing up, and it gets everywhere and on and in everything! I'm sure plenty of people have eaten it without even knowing! If I ever made a list of things my kids or grandkids ate I think it would shock all the new wave moms to death! When I was a kid we used to eat our paste (glue) that Elmer's used to make because it was mint! As my dad used to say"if I had a nickel for all of the negative comments and attitudes I would be a rich woman" your apples are beautiful!
Thanks a million!!
Hello. I love your work. I have a question. When I follow your candy apple recipe my blue turns a rotten looking green once I had in my cherry flavor at the end... What can I do to prevent this?
Hmmm, is the flavoring colored? If so, I'm not sure how you could avoid that. The flavorings that I use are all clear.
Thanks for responding. I use cherry candy flavoring oil by lorann. It also gives a burnt taste everytime but when I use the vanilla extract instead it comes out perfect
The apples are some of the most beautiful I have seen. Thank you for posting your recipes, I am hooked on Candy Apple making. I am most excited about the ones with the Disco Dust and glitter as I love the sparkle on those. I am now going to try the wilton sprays. I love the way the silver one came out and I think using the sprays can help you make a variety. I was always wondering how people made all these color batches at once and now I know...the base is white and you move forward with colorings from that.
I made a batch of jolly rancher candy apples...have you ever tried this? I would love your take on those. The two recipes I found had different oven temps to use..250 and 350. The candy also takes more time to melt than the standard 5 minutes I have seen. Bad part is it takes a lot of candies to make a good batch...I counted around 40 pieces of candies to make two medium to large apples. Let us know if you can try these and post them.
the world is full of idiots who can't see the joy in something and try to ruin it for everybody. I love what you have done and know that there are more like ME than THEM. Keep up the good work!
Hi, how do you prevent bubbles from forming once the candy has cooled for 30 sec. What do you use to clean the apples with besides hot/warm water?
I haven't figured out the secret to the bubbles yet but it seems like if I stir the candy until it stops bubbling as much, then dip the apples, they have less bubbles. I only use warm water to wash them off then dry them with a paper towel.
I also love your candy apples and I have tried but fail to make them. I finally getting the look down but unfortunately the taste is horribly I am using lorann flavoring but the taste is always just bitter any suggestions
I'm honestly not sure - try skipping the Lorann's and just using vanilla or no flavoring at all!?
I figured it out after destroying dozens of apples. When the taste is bitter or taste like medicine you've used too much flavor. Some flavors are stronger than others. The Lorann Watermelon flavor was the strongest and I learned to only use 1/8 teaspoon for my apples. Another thing ... put your flavor and coloring in at the end it avoids the coloring to over cook. I hope that helps!
Good to know! Thanks for sharing!
So without flavor it will still be sweet regardless of the color I choose?
Yes. Unless the coloring is causing the bitterness but I've never experienced that.
the mos beaitufl apple that i ever see!
OMG! just perfect!
it´s oficially the next project in my list!
😀 Have fun!!
Some of my Candy apples started "melting". I dried them off and and everything was fine but some started breaking down. What did I do wrong?
After how long?
Hey Rose how do you get your candy apples so white? I can never get mine that white they always turn like a beige color.
It sounds like you're cooking the sugar a little too long. If you don't want to color them, but leave them plain white, be careful to remove the sugar from heat AS SOON AS it reaches the correct temperature and then mix in the white coloring right at the end.
I wonder if you ever use sanding sugar on your candy apples?
If so how do you get the sugar to stay on after the candy has harden on the apples?
I'd do them the same way as the sparkling sugar - paint with corn syrup then sprinkle on the sugar!
For the apples with the Wilton gold and silver pearlized sugar on them - about how many apples can be covered with one jar of the sugar? Thanks!
Oooh, I'm not sure. I'd guess that you could get 3-5 apples covered per bottle of sugar.
LOL at the food police. Wonder how many of them guzzled goldshlager as a young adult because it was cool? Or worse!
Hi, can you tell me how to not get bubbles on my apples
I wish I could but that's one secret I haven't figured out yet!
Hello, I wanted to know when painting them with the corn syrup before using the sanding sugar, do you mix anything with the sanding sugar to kinda thin it out? When I tried the is before, the corn syrup was so thick it would not go over the apple smoothly and it was just a big mess.
The thickness may depend on the brand, but you could absolutely thin it with a few drops of water. Just be careful to not get it too watery!
My apologies, I was not clear in my question. I meant to say, do you mix anything with the corn syrup, not sanding sugar. When I tried this before, I tried with a chocolate covered strawberry as well, but when trying to paint just straight corn syrup on, it was thick and did not go on smoothly. I wanted to know, do you mix anything with the corn syrup such as water, or heat it up to get it to go on smoothly.
I mix water with the corn syrup and use that as paint/glue before sprinkling the sugar or disco dust.
I am going to try my hand at your recipe and technique, (wish me luck!) I was wondering what it would look like if I added gold food coloring into the candy dip? I so want these to come out! Thank you for sharing and keep creating, no matter what people say.
Hmmmm... I'm not sure but I'd love to hear how they turn out!
Also, for the ones with disco dust (yes, i know all about it and im OK with using it) did you just "sprinkle" the disco dust over the apple or did you paint it on?
I made simple syrup (mixed a few drops of water with corn syrup) and painted that over the apples, then sprinkled it over the surface.
I love your candy apples! I made some gorgeous fuchsia candy apples for my daughter's birthday last month using your recipe. They were such a hit! You're fantastic! I love your ideas!
May I ask, what is your recipe for the simple sugar that you paint on the harden apples? Do you need to cook the sugar mixture in a saucepan? Does that simple sugar recipe harden or does it make a big sticky mess? What is your secret?
Hi Laura - thanks so much for your comment!! For the simple syrup, I mixed water and corn syrup 50/50 and I did not cook it. It did "dry" but stay a little sticky. I haven't made many where I painted things on them so it hasn't been too much of a mess YET! haha!
Gorgeous work as always! I tried candy apples from Sweetapolita for the first time and loved the way they turned out. I had no idea what I did wrong because I did get bubbles. Now after reading this post, I feel much better 🙂
I personally prefer caramel apples, do you have a recipe for that? I have read that most people use Peter's caramel. Also can I dip it in caramel and then after that in chocolate? Your thoughts?
Thanks so much. I absolutely adore your work!
to paint lusterdust you could try mixing it with a little crisco to make a "paint", or lightly coat apple with a little crisco and paint with dry powder. this technique works with candy melts due to the waxy texture. think of it like alcohol and wax = water and oil, they don't mesh well 🙂
you can now use TruColor food colours which are entirely "natural" and chemical free. You would have to use the metallic colours and paint on or use with airbrush.
HOW MANY JARS OF THIS GOLD SHIMMERY DUST DO I NEED TO CREATE 100 APPLES IT ONE APPLE PER CHILD SO I DON'T THINK IT WILL HURT THEM. LIKE YOU SAID I SEEN KIDS EAT WORSE AND THEY ARE STILL HERE
Oooh, I have no idea, sorry. 🙁
how do you make the apples the silver, blue shimmery look. is it edible spray? and sprinkles as well
I eat disco dust on many of my baked goods, I give them to my kids, friends, family and strangers too! You know you've had too much when you start pooping glitter! Just saying! Non-toxic people!!! Thanks for taking the heat!!!
i think they look gorgeous. I only just found out about that disco glitter. I bought it at a cake decorating shop. I had been feeding it to my guest and kids for years in small amounts. I don't think any of them have died yet.
Bride To Renew
OMG! I'm in love with the Silver & Gold Apples. I want this for my vow renewal and please continue to ignore the ignorance of others.....No one is force them to patrol and become haters because they didn't have such brilliant ideas as you....plz email me the recipe for the them. Thanks again
The recipe is linked to up in the post and I give all the details for the different methods there too! 🙂
I do enjoy reading the "supportive" comments for eating plastic craft glitter. It's as though people who know better than to consume scrapbooking supplies, or to feed them to others, are somehow uninformed or uninspired. It amazes to me the lengths that people will go to justify doing something that they just don't want to admit is .......wrong.
No baker or decorator has the knowledge, or right, to minimize the deliberate consumption of any amount of plastic of questionable origin, make up, or manufacture. Do what you want to yourself--and I guess family is an extension of self--but don't speak for the health and well-being of others. You have no background to determine what eating plastic will do.
Just like cigarettes a hundred years ago, no one even considered them a problem until adverse events occurred and studies were done.
Meanwhile, suffice it to say that the FDA considers it adulteration to put plastic disco dust on food. It can lead to an enforcement action by the agency.
And on a side note, someone feeds plastic glitter to my child,................well, there will be dire consequences and the least of their worries will be their bowel movements.
You're funny. You've got to be fun at parties.
I just started making candy apples whats the best advice u can give me for packaging them. I have use cellophane clear bags but they seem to sick . Any help would be appreciated.
That's the only thing Ive used. You can also buy boxes at some suppliers.
Hello Rose, thanks for sharing your tips and techniques. I have a question...how do you paint the syrup on? Also, what's the best ways to ship without melting and breaking. Thank you
I honestly don't recommend shipping them. I use a food-safe paint brush.
Hello! I love the Gold apples with the disco dust. I would not use it other than as decorative for table, but I also like the marbleized apple. I think this is a great idea and I plan on having these at our next Women's retreat. Thanks for the ideas.
I tried your recipe but the next day the candy started melting and it was a little sticky. Did I do something wrong?
Candy apples will not last for more than a few hours. The moisture from the fruit will begin to break down the candy.
To get a bubble free apple, you must clean the apple first, run lukewarm water in the sink and put a couple of caps full of white vinegar, an about a tablespoon of baking soda in the water, let it soak for an hour. this dissolves the wax from the skin of the apples, and loosens the debris (dirt). Then take a clean dry cloth, and, dry the apples off individually and remove the stem as you remove any dirt from the apple. I place the sticks in each apple, then let the apples air dry, I allow my apples to air dry at least an hour. Then when you make your hard candy allow it to cool for about a minute after removing from heat. This can be done while you add your flavoring, I slowly stir in my flavoring in at this time the bubbles starts to eliminate themselves as it cools.
Chantel, follow my bubble free instructions, and do not refrigerate your apples, it will cause the moisture to get back into the apples, then the candy sofens get sticky and melts. Candy apples should be placed in a cool dry place. Should also be consumed relatively in a few days. I hope this helps
OMG I love you!!! Love the bluntness and straight to the point attitude. I'm HOOKED! lol Can't wait to read more. 🙂
Take care & Many Blessings
🙂 SO happy to have you hear reading!!
Have not started decorating yet love the ideas and the apples are beautiful.
I love the disco dust ones!It really does give the best sparkle effect. I understand some peoples concerns about using disco dust on edible products, but it doesnt bother me at all. The dust is so fine you really arent consuming much. Besides play dough & crayons are non toxic and we all know kids have consummed many of those products and have lived through it lol
Now, im not saying to eat disco dust everyday, im just saying eating it on a special occasion is not going to harm you. I'd be more worried about the chemicals they put in our food!Now thats scary & harmful
Very nice and beautiful do you have candy apples classes
I don't, sorry!
Thanks so much for sharing, and for the helpful information. I've been wondering how some of these beautiful apples were created and I appreciate your candor/honesty.
Thanks for the help I'm ready to make shimmering apples
Hi rose. Question. Can u achieve this look on white candy melts? By the way #teamrose #weliveinamerica #ourkidsbreaththeair #butyourworriedaboutalilglitter #getouttahere
I am not sure if the sprays would work on candy melts (probably would be my guess), but you could absolutely use the disco dust on white chocolate! And thank you 🙂
I've used discount dust too, it's no big deal. People are real excited to eat glitter lol. I saw your lustre dust vodka one was a bust. Have tried just dry dusting the lustre dust on. I do this with my cake pops they are beautiful.
I haven't but that's a great idea!
I would like to know how did you apply the Disco dust to the apples and also how did you apply the 50/50 water corn syrup mixture
I painted on the syrup then just sprinkled on the disco dust straight out of the jar.
why in the world would you ever get nasty emails and comments 🙁
I think your apples are absolutely beautiful and thank you so much for your for your wonderful tutorial of your trials and errors and pictures!!! Keep up the good work ... i think your page is amazing 🙂
Thanks so much Paula! xx
What about edible gold leaf? Im sure its expensive but im curious.
That's a fantastic idea - I may have to try it myself!!
Thankyou for posting how to get the shine. Everyone else just shows pictures, so its no real help. Stay real.
Keep up the great work.
They're all beautiful
your apples are so beautiful I'm trying to make some gold and pink apples for my niece baby shower I waant the gold apple to sparkle and my white to shine and my pink I was thinking about some gold glitter to make it sparkle more do you have any suggesting on a good product for glitter
Other than what I've mentioned in the post, no.
We'll, of course if you don't want to feed people plastic scrapbooking materials, the best idea is larger crystal sugar dyed to the color you wasn't and then tossed with some EDIBLE luster dust. Roxy &Rich makes beautiful EDIBLE metallics. I'm sure your guests would appreciate the effort....
Hello! Your apples are unique and very very beautiful! I have tried to do them but I can not make them go well. The candy supposedly all good ... but when let them rest they stick to the paper where I leave them to rest. Please tell me what to do so that they do not stick: '(
I use sugar, water, corn syrup, red color and edible glitter.
You look beautiful your apples with white caramel! Thank you for your images and tips.
How much sanding sugar is needed to cover 1apple
I wish I could tell you exactly but I'm not sure. My guess would be about a tablespoon.
I'm not sure if I asked you this question before, I was wondering if you do online classes, for the candy apples?
I don't, I'm sorry.
ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! Thank you for this blog!! My daughter will go crazy over these for her birthday celebration!!! Im going to try turquoise and purple!! And my test batch will be red, white and blue for Independence Day!!
Thanks so much Paula!
Hello Rose I love your colors... brilliant but the questionI have I make gourmet popcorn...I would like to try different colors sinceI use a lot of sugar and corn syrup.... do you have any ideas??
Hi Charlene - I've never made gourmet popcorn - so I'm not any help! Sorry!
Thx Ms Rose.
Can some of those colors be incorporated with popcorn ...
One other question...can taffy candy be used to coat an apple??
I really don't know anything about covering popcorn. And I've never tried taffy on apples 🙂
I think your apples receipts are great and your mother is very smart. Keep giving us something to share with the ones we love.
Let them say what they want, keep your head up & carry on with what you do bestyour talent is yours n nobody can take that away from you
Love your cany apple recipes
These look lovely, but I can't seem to find the Americolor white gel coloring anywhere. (I am from the UK.) I stumbled across this recipe while searching for things to make my friends.
Do you know of an alternative I could use? My expertise lie in sugar crafting flowers to be fair 🙂
I'm sorry - I'm not familiar with what might be available for you in the UK.
What i dont understand is if disco dust is not supposed to be edible why is it sold as a decoration for food. Makes no sense. But all of your aplles are pretty. Especially the glittery ones.
I love everything you did I can't wait to try the Siler & Gold apples , When I do I will send you a picture.
Question? Do you know where to purchase the small miniature silver stands I see used to hold the candy apples?
I don't - sorry! I tried googling and came up empty as well. 🙁
The glitter apples are BEAUTIFUL I am going to try them THANKYOU ❤️
This was very helpful. Your apples look really nice. I wanted to try to make the gold apples on my own for a décor table. I think I will be able to complete this because of your step by step direction. I also love the controversy apples as well.
How did you get the white candies to stick I have some white sugar crystals that I'm think if I did that I color spray them with the green mist spray
I’d like to try the disco dust on the candy apples it’ll be a one time thing so I’m pretty excited
This was a fun read. Thanks for sharing. You can get a great gold by using Americolor Gold sheen. It is food coloring so it is edible and will give you a great color.
I think it is all beautiful!! Sometimes people have mean hearts, and say mean things 🙁 I think they are just sad people!! Your work is gorgeous!! I'm trying to make shiney gold chocolate covered strawberries for a wedding shower in September. It is a 1920's theme, and I thought gold, and cream color would look nice. I can't find a true black chocolate. I'm sorry this is so long. If you have any thoughts or ideas just let me know. Keep on doing the awesome work you do!! Blessings, Dori
You could use black candy melts (not real chocolate, but really black) or add black candy coloring to real chocolate (find it here: https://amzn.to/2l8kmrZ ).
I've used disco dust on some of my goodies, so I'm ok with it in moderation 🙂
Prairies & Petals
Informative and interesting Blog! Beautifully written, as usual, I like the post. Thank you so much for nice sharing with us. Keep posting!
Thankyou, I just made for my granddaughters birthday . They loved them I wasn’t too satisfied since it was my first time using the glitters but I know that the next time I make it will be to my expectations ❤️
Although this comment is being posted years later after your post, and you may be long since aware, edible gold glitter or beads have been around for years.
A cocktail called Poison Apple uses edible gold glitter, which is available for purchase online and some specialty craft stores may sell it in the baking aisles,
Thank you for sharing! Your ideas are great!
How come my apples are still sticky, I’m afraid of putting in the bags because they may stick to the bag!! Help
