7 Go-To Ways to Use Fancy Edible Glitter

The best part about Fancy Edible Glitter is that it can go on or in anything you intend to eat or drink. Being FDA-approved as well as 100% tasteless and textureless, it’s a quintessential food and drink enhancer for any occasion—or f*ck it just because.

Here are our top seven favorite ways we’ve used it and seen it creatively used by others:

1. Glitter Garnishes

Decorate your decorations. Adding a cherry to a Manhattan or a Shirley Temple? Dip it in Ruby Red Edible Glitter to make it sparkly AF. Or change the color of your garnish entirely to match your fav color palette.

This also works with citrus wedges and rind spirals, melon, fresh herbs, starfruit, pickled veggies (for those Bloody Mary's), and whatever else you craft up.

2. Glitter Cocktails & Mocktails

Easily one of the most popular ways to use Fancy Edible Glitter, add it to any beverage — fizzy, flat, on the rocks, shaken, stirred, or as virgin as they come. #ThankYouMadonna

Most commonly, people love to add glitter to their champagne, white wine or rosé, light-in-color or hazy beers, or vodka-based cocktails. It’s just as easy with regular daytime drinks as well, including seltzer water (or even still or tap), cranberry or apple juice, iced or hot tea, lemonade, crystal light, etc.

No matter your preferred beverage at whatever time of day, make it a fancy one.

3. Sparkly Ice Cubes

Even ice cubes deserve a little glam once in a while. Keep a silicone ice cube mold on hand for those low-key get-togethers or special celebrations.

Say you get promoted at work—your congratulatory drink feels a lot more celebratory when it sparkles as much as your new salary.

And we’ll let you in on our favorite ice cube hack—they don’t have to be just plain frozen water. In fact, we love to freeze white wine or rosé so it keeps the glass of wine plenty chilled and doesn’t water it down as the ice cube melts.

Fancy Tip: Use one Fancy Edible Glitter color for your drink, and another in the ice, and as the ice melts, the colors will combine to change the color of your drink!

For instance, if you mix a drink with Fool's Gold and put Sapphire Blue in your ice cubes, your drink will evolve into a gorgeous shade of green.

4. Glitter Popsicles

If there was ever a time for glittery homemade popsicles, summer is it. All you need is a popsicle mold, Fancy Edible Glitter, and your popsicle mix of choice (fruit punch, lemonade, Capri Sun, Capri Sun.)

These take less than five minutes to put together. Then within a couple hours, they are the perfect sparkly treat to cool down with on a hot day.

We’re also not opposed to letting a grocery store popsicle melt in a bowl, and then adding the edible glitter and refreezing in asilicone mold with reusable acrylic sticks. You do you.

5. Jell-O Bites Like Mom Never Made

Say hello to the Jell-O you never knew you were missing as a kid. If mom could have made it sparkly back then, trust us, she would have.

Whether you subscribe to individual portions or sheet-pan style, a couple taps of Fancy Edible Glitter in pre-set Jell-O adds an unexpected modern twist to an otherwise old school treat.

6. Jell-O Shot with a Twist

And now meet the Jell-O shot in its fifth year of undergrad...imagine these in college.

Combine pre-set Jell-O mix with your go-to spirit, such as vodka, and stir in Fancy Edible Glitter, or dust a little over the top of the Jell-O after it sets.

Fancy Tip: Rim the individual serving cups in honey and your favorite Fancy Sugar.

7. Glitter Dusting Top-Off

Because it really belongs on like...everything.

Use a Fancy Dusting Pump to evenly spray snacks, entire meals, or whatever you intend to eat. It adds a picture-perfect sparkle for that extra je ne sais quoi.
