Disco dust is not edible. It is plastic craft glitter and should not be applied to food that will be eaten. It doesn't matter that it is non-toxic--so is playdoh, craft glue, and silly putty, but we don't decorate food with those, either.

You should be using edible cake sparkles [colored gum arabic], unflavored gelatin [colored and ground into flakes], or fine grain sanding sugar [bought colored or colored using a dot of gel paste color rubbed into it.

Adorable! I cant wait to try this.
Those beards are the cutest! What brand of candy melts do you use? I always have the worst luck with them.
Penolopy, for the Santa cake pops I used almond bark and colored it with candy coloring. I find the almond bark has a thinner consistency than the candy melts. I also like the Make n Mold candy melts. I recently learned that you can use paramount crystals to thin the coating so I will be trying that soon. Also, you can add vegetable oil to your coating to thin it.
