I’ve never heard of edible glitter, but I think as a guest, I would be slightly pissed off to have my clothes covered in any kind of glitter – that stuff NEVER COMES OUT of anything. 🙂

My venue had the same requirement and we went with dried lavender. It actually looks really good in pictures and smells amazing.

It sounds cool but as a guest I’d be upset if I had handfuls of glitter being thrown all around me. It will be stuck in your guest hair/clothes for days

I think you have a very cute idea, and I have seen edible glitter, but I myself would not want to take a handful of it and throw it in the air. It looks great on cookies and cupcakes and cute baked goods, but not so much on people…I think it would get sticky! Plus it is super fine and not the same texture as the glitter you use in craft stores (at least the kind that the bakery I go to uses is very fine, almost like a dust).

What about bio degradable confetti?

I would be worried that anything ‘edibile’ would desintigrate if it got wet and possibly stain.

I think your venue will HATE YOU if you use glitter, edible or not. It could take a really, really really long time for that to disappear, and is basically impossible to clean up.

I agree with @crayfish: . 

also, it wold stain people’s clothes if it has color, or at least make them so sticky they would have to get them dry cleaned.

and I would hate to get that in my eyes. 

don’t do it.

I would go with a biodegradable glitter or confetti before an edible glitter- particularly if you are thinking of the one that is floating around pinterest right now.  I tried out the DIY recipe for it, and it came out as more of a colored sand then a glitter.  It was pretty for cookies, but not the effect you are  trying for.  Also the colors on it did run a little when I put an iced cupcake in the fridge, and it got some condensation on it- the glitter bled out into the cupcake frosting, so I’d assume it would do the same to clothes or skin if it got damp.

@BlingBride2012:  hiya, I’m a cake decorator n work with edible glitter regularly.. I would highly reccomend biodegradable vs edible… The edible does disolve to an extent with water but it sticks to skin, hair and anything else like glue… My hubby has had several trips to the hospital to have it removed after touching counters I’ve n been working on…. Haha (I shouldn’t laugh but I will!) 🙂
