Parents: Edible cake glitter can be bought from most confectioners or you can make your own. Just add a one or two drops of food colouring to sugar crystals, not to much or you might end up with a soggie mess.

Try to use Red and Green food colouring for that added Christmas sparkle.

I would make it before hand and pop it into a jar for the children to FIND in the cupboard.

Hi folks, an update on Magic Reindeer Food.

DD and me have been researching some alternatives to edible cake glitter, which can work out expensive if you only want it for this occation.

Bulgur Wheat
Bulgur wheat colours well with food colouring and dries almost instantly, obviously it dosen’t sparkle but it adds good Christmasy colour to the reindeer food.

A couple of table spoons should be enough.

OR Demerara Sugar is another alternative, again expensive but you only need two large table spoons.

Colour one table spoon full green and the other red, spread out on a plate to dry over night. The sugar will sick together when dry so just break it up the a knife or just your fingers. Works perfectly.

We made a batch with Bulger Wheat and another batch with demerara suger and divided them into 4 lots,we left two lots open in the kitchen and the other two lots in plastic bags to see what would happen to it. To my surprise it didn’t clunp or stick so I think it will keep quite well either way.

When you have made your reindeer food please come back and leave a comment just to let me know how your reindeer food turned out.


Enjoy the fun…
