Spray adhesive would prob work pretty well. You can get it at most craft stores.

I second that. It’s the only way you will get a clean and uniform coat. Otherwise its going to get globby looking. Good luck!

Are you using regular glitter or edible? Have you tried this before? Because from my experience glitter tends to transfer a lot! You wouldnt want the glitter to transfer on to the cake that people are going to eat. maybe you can spray something over it to seal it?

I agree with the spray glue.  I would also use ultrafine glitter as it looks a little classier than large chunks of plastic.  Since it will be on top of the cake just give it a good tap before putting it on top.  When you and your FH eat the top in a year just peel the fondant off the top and toss it and voila!  glitter free cake!

Suggestion – spray the wood with a color similar to the glitter you want to use. Wait for it to dry and either use a spray of glitter or a paint that you can brush on from Hobby Lobby or any craft store.  I’d definitely use a spray adhesive/overlay when you’re done.   Good luck!

You can find the spray at any craft store ๐Ÿ™‚  look in the spray paint section, I’ve used Acrylic spray on flowers and that works – just make sure you dont plan to touch them again for awhile and let them dry before picking them up – they’ll be sticky while they’re wet.

What about using hair spray to seal it after it’s dry? Seems like that should work?
