Without tooting our own horn, this may be the easiest way to add some super speedy sparkle to your table without breaking a sweat! There’s no shame in buying a delicious and lovely looking cake, to jazz it up at home, or for your dessert table. Glittering flags grouped together create a fun cake topper, perfect to add a little extra shimmer to your dessert.

What You Will Need:

  • Glitter tape. You could also use washi tape. Play around with different widths and colours to match your theme. Most stationery stores stock glitter tape.
  • Scissors
  • Thin kebab sticks
  • Delicious desserts!

Step 1. We said this was easy, and quick, and that’s no lie! Grab your tape and cut a few different sized lengths, approximately 5-10cm long. Wrap them securely around the kebab stick, stick together evenly and then trim to a point.

Step 2. Trim the kebab sticks to different lengths and pop them into the centre of your cake. Use one per dessert, or group together for a centrepiece effect. Adding a little sparkle has never been easier, and the best news is you can make a bunch in advance and be ready to top a glittering cake in seconds!

The Sparkle Issue has made us dig out everything glittery and twinkly and quite frankly, what could be better than prosecco topped with edible gold leaf? Today’s cocktail requires both, and as official taste testers for this one, I advise you that this is just the cocktail your summer wedding needs. It’s refreshing, it’s delicious and it’s absolutely ticking all the festive boxes.

Prosecco is my favourite at the best of times, so freezing it with a dash of our beloved elderflower liqueur (St Germain) is simply delightful. Edible gold leaf is easy to find at cake decorating stores, and even easier if you shop online. It’s definitely the finishing touch a wedding cocktail needs.

Ingredients

  • Edible gold leaf
  • One bottle of prosecco
  • One lemon (juiced)
  • 60ml elderflower liqueur

Method

  1. A minimum of 24 hours ahead of serving, pour prosecco, lemon juice of one lemon and elderflower into a jug and stir well.
  2. Pour into a wide flat tray and freeze for 24 hours.
  3. When ready to serve using a fork, scrape across the tray to form ice crystals. Alternatively, break the ice into pieces and blend.
  4. If you want a little extra bubble, top your glass with some chilled, unfrozen prosecco.
  5. Top with small pieces of edible gold leaf.

This refreshing and beautifully garnished cocktail is the perfect addition to post-ceremony drinks or welcome drinks at The Farm. Its refreshing nature keeps guests cool during the warmer months while letting them celebrate in style in a stunning outdoor setting.
