Edible Embellishments

It's finals week, and I'm taking a break from microbial genetics to write a post of pretty tasty things. So, without further ado, here are a few of my favorite things:

1. Airbrush

Same idea as a normal paint airbrush, except this one uses edible paints! Check out these stunningly delicious chocolates from the chocolate shop near my house:

2. Sugar Pearls (a.k.a. Dragees or Fancy Sprinkles)

Sugar pearls are the cornerstone of daintyness

3. Gold Leaf

I'm jumping from dainty to down right gaudy.

...it can't be good to ingest this much gold...

4. Disco Dust

Saved my favorite for last! Disco dust is just edible glitter that looks fabulous on everything!

Perfect for bedazzling icing...

...or for making home-made Peeps shimmer! (I seriously need to make myself some Peeps!)

But the best part about Disco Dust is that it doesn't dissolve. Meaning you can use it to add some pizzazz to any beverage!

In the end, sparkles and shiny things should probably be consumed in moderation...

  1. Things that enter your body that are sparkly shiny also leave your body sparkly shiny.
