Glitter All the Things

Can you really ever have too much glitter? Okay, maybe with one of those obnoxious glitter bombs that blow up in your face and pretty much ruin your life, but other than that I don’t think so. In honor of the upcoming New Year’s celebration let’s explore some fantastic glitter cakes!

I seriously love this sphere covered in blue glitter! It adds a really unique element to the cake.

This particular technique was quite popular this year and for good reason. The chunky sequin glitter is such a nice texture on so many cakes! It adds a bit of glitz and glamour and who wouldn’t want that? Check out the tutorial below by Shakar Bakery on how to easily create this gorgeous effect!
