Sparkling Sanding Sugar


Let's make cookies sparkle!
I love using sanding sugar on cookies. It makes them pop. Even if you just ice  them with white royal icing and sprinkle sanding sugar on top. It is an easy and effective way to decorate cookies.
I decided to add a touch of disco dust to sanding sugar and use it for all my cookie sugar dipping or sprinkling needs.It worked. They sparkle.

Sanding Sugar versus granulated Sugar

Sanding sugar has larger crystals than typical granulated sugar you buy in the grocery store. Larger crystals  of sanding sugar reflect light of their facets, and so  when using on cookies sanding sugar makes cookies glisten. Also, sanding sugar will not dissolve immediately when exposed to liquid like granulated sugar, instead it sticks to any moist or warm surface. Sanding sugar can be added to cookies right after they were baked, while still hot.
You can purchase  sanding sugar in specialty stores, or online.

  1. Great idea! I love disco dust and I love sanding sugar but I never thought to combine the two. The more sparkle the better!
