Valentine’s Day was perhaps created by the Romans but essentially perfected by the Victorians. There is an art to decadence, and it’s fragrant fervor, and aromas bleed from every adorned realm of Old Victoria. This time is the quintessential ideal of Valentine’s Day, inspiring gripping, passionate love with an idyllic flair. In modern day, how do we bring back the feeling of old romance with an up to date twist? We combine the charming, whimsical, Edible Glitter from Watson with the captivating Aristocratic and Bourgeoisie style of a time gone by.

Pancake Day 2018 falls on Tuesday, February 13th! People everywhere are getting out their non-stick pans and whipping their flipping wrists into shape for the grand event! Armfuls, balancing tiers of butter, milk, eggs and numerous fillings to satisfy the dispensing of fatty ingredients just in time for Lent.

According to Wikipedia National Doughnut Day started on June 7, 1938 when Morgan Pett, a military doctor, was sent to a military base. He stopped at a bakery on his way and picked up some doughnuts as a treat for the soldiers in his care. Samuel Geary, a Lieutenant General, greatly appreciated the help on his leg, AND the doughnut. He decided to join Morgan Pett in a fund raiser to give every wounded soldier a doughnut. This fund raiser was later taken on by the Salvation Army.

Happy National Doughnut Day!

#NationalDoughnutDay is June 5th. That’s inspiring me to blog about Edible Glitter™ on doughnuts. Doughnuts are a great application for Edible Glitter. One type of doughnut in particular is a perfect fit, and that is the powdered sugar doughnut. The reason that I like this application the best is that it is a challenge. Other types of sprinkles, like shots or Jimmies (there are lots of names for these, depending on what area of the country you are from), nonpareils, and colored sugar just cannot stick to a powdered sugar donut. Typically, you need a thick layer of fresh icing to get traditional sprinkles to stick. (The sprinkles are actually pressed into the frosting on the donut.)

Did you know that more chips are eaten at 4th of July BBQs than at any other time of the year? Who doesn't have chips on the 4th of July! These are great Independence Day themed chips, made just by sprinkling on a little red and blue Edible Glitter™. One of the things I like about working with Edible Glitter™ is that the flakes are so thin and light, that they stick easily to any surface that is even only slightly sticky, or oily in this case. Edible glitter even sticks to buttered popcorn!

This shows you how easy it is to turn any ordinary food item into a holiday favorite with Edible Glitter™.
