Question Cupcake Glitters

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the forum and was looking for some tips/advice...

My first query is whether anyone can clear up my confusion around how "edible" glitters actually are. Some sites warn you that their glitter isn't safe to eat and you must remove it before you eat the cake (what a waste?!), some say they that are legally not to advertise them as edible, but are actually fine to eat and lastly, others say they are completely edible and to be wary of the ones that claim to be edible. I'm soooo confused! Can anyone recommend any brand/suppliers?

And secondly, what techniques are there for using glitters? I initially thought you mixed it in with your frosting, then piped it onto your cupcake, but most sites seem to tell me to sprinkle it on top? I like the idea of having buttercream that is completely shimmery. Again, can anyone recommend any products?

Thanks in advance everyone
