15 Glitter Recipes Sure to Make Your Day Sparkle

Whether you’re planning a Kate Spade-inspired bridal shower or a sick unicorn party, or you straight up just need something sparkly to lift your spirits, nothing does the trick quite like glitter. Imagine the wonderful mood you’ll be in after eating a glitter-topped donut — can you even?! It could be black, gold or even rainbow colored, because there are zero rules when it comes to decorating your food with edible glitter. Take a trip to your local craft store and load up on all things glitzy, because these 15 glitter-dusted edibles will make your day.

1. Pixie Dusted Almonds: The prettiest new take on Jordan almonds, these make-at-home snacks would be perfect for a wedding, party or afternoon treat. They’re just the pick-me-up you need to brighten your day. (vis Squirrelly Minds)

2. Glitter Ice Cubes: Turn your ice tray into the life of the party with food glitter and an additional secret weapon (it’s not quite as simple as it looks!). Cocktails at girls’ night will never be the same after they’re iced down with these disco cubes. (via A Subtle Revelry)

3. Black Velvet Galaxy Nebula Cake: Any astro-enthusiast would *love* this cake on her birthday. Be that awesome friend and take the time to make her this outrageous starry galaxy cake. Don’t be intimidated — it’s way easier than it looks. (via Sprinkle Bakes)

4. Champagne Cupcakes: Sometimes you need something sparkly in and on your cupcakes. These have Champagne in the batter and the icing, so you really taste that bubbly flavor. Shower the tops with gold sprinkles to make them extra jazzy. (via Life Love and Sugar)

5. Disco Truffles: Anything with the word “disco” in the name has to be amazing. Beneath the edible gold glitter is an indulgent chocolate truffle that deserves every bit of its snazzy topcoat. (via Sugar Hero)

6. DIY Glitter Donuts: Whether you’re making these for a glitzy bachelorette party or a nine-year-old’s birthday, they make a show-stopping centerpiece. Plus, you can buy store-bought donuts to start off with and jazz them up in no time. (via Dreaming in Pink Boutique)

7. Easy No-Fail Meringue Recipe: Simple vanilla meringues make a great base for decorating. Even just food coloring and a paint brush give these a pretty upgrade, but the edible gold leaf really takes it over the top. (via Bakers Royale)

8. Galaxy Bark: Unicorn bark had its moment recently, but galaxy bark is just as cool and easy to make. Starting out with a black base creates the perfect backdrop for your galaxy and allows the colors, star sprinkles and edible glitter dust to shine. (via Life With the Crust Cut Off)

9. Gold Glitter Cake: Adding a little bling to your cake is always a good idea. This gold dusted cake would be lovely for a birthday or Oscar party, or even as one tier of a towering wedding cake. Add bold flowers as a topper to complement the gold. (via Brit + Co)

10. Happy Goth Blackberry Popsicles: They’re happy because they’re glittering and they’re goth because they’re dark and moody — and sometimes we can relate to both. Reserve these for when you’re having a bad day and need some cheering up. (via The Crepes of Wrath)

11. Luna Lovegood’s Pudding: Harry Potter fans, it’s time for a freakout. We can all agree that this pink and sparkly pudding perfectly personifies the quirky Luna Lovegood. Aside from that, it’s delicious, and would be fitting decor for any gathering. (via Spoon Fork Bacon)

12. French Macarons: Homemade macarons are one of the most thoughtful gifts you could give someone. Fill the middle with their favorite buttercream flavor and decorate the tops with various patterns of edible gold paint and glitter. These would be a great treat for a new mom to celebrate her bundle of joy. (via Miss Renaissance)

13. Glittery Gold Chocolate-Dipped Oreos: Chocolate-dipped Oreos are a holiday favorite, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make them all year long. Switch up the color of the glitter depending on the event and you have a festive treat for any occasion. (via About)

14. Gianduja Cupcakes: Glittered bonbons should be a required accessory for all cupcakes. If you can’t get your hands on Gianduja, Nutella would be a fine substitute with a similar flavor… but no subbing the glitz, please. (via Lulu’s Sweet Secrets)

15. Sugar Cookie Puppy Chow With Funfetti Glitter: There’s only one way to accessorize your sugar cookie puppy chow, and that’s with rainbow glitter. This would be so fun as a party favor, or just an uplifting road trip snack. (via From Me to Vuu)
