Glitter cakes, also known as shimmer cakes, are made from edible glitter. These glitters are often known as edible disco dust or edible shimmers. The idea of this has evolved from the party theme of disco, so the cake goes well with bash celebrations, parties, and bachelorette celebrations. The main attractions of these cakes are their shiny appearance, colourful glitter, and elegant flowers. At CakExpo, all the glitter cakes are made fresh and delivered to your doorstep.

Shimmer Cake with customized topper
The beauty of a shimmering cake is its simplicity. So we have tried to keep it that way. This round shimmer cake is simple and unicolour. At a glance, it will look like a sponge, but it is really a cake, though the base is as soft as a sponge. You can choose the colours, shimmers, and flavours to your liking, and the most incredible thing about it is the cake topper. The case holds a bronze metal cutout topper, which is fully customizable. If you want to celebrate the anniversary of your parents or welcome a new baby, let us know, and we will prepare the topper for you.
What is cake shimmer?
Cake shimmer is different than that from craft shimmer. It is mostly used to decorate bread and confectionery items and uses only ingredients that are FSSAI-approved. Edible glitter, when sprinkled on cake surfaces or on top of cupcakes, creates a sparkling look. It has no taste, no preservatives, and has a shelf life of one year from the date of manufacture. It does not stick to the tongue or mouth and is digested well.
What is edible shimmer made of?
Sugar, acacia (gum arabic), maltodextrin, cornstarch, and colour additives specifically approved for food consumption, such as mica-based pearlescent pigments and FD&C colours like FD&C Blue No. 1, are common components in edible glitter or dust. Most edible glitters and dust have “edible” listed on the packaging.
Is cake glitter safe to eat?
As these cake glitters are made from cornstarch and sugar, they are safe to eat. However, it should be kept in mind that it should not be used as a regular garnish, as consumption in huge amounts may be harmful. Also, people with allergies should stay away from it.
