|All you need for a Glitzer is a pizza base, all the|
toppings, and a star-shaped cookie cutter for
stamping out the salami slices.
'Well, of course it is,' said I, crustily. I was cheesed off that he didn't find my Glitzer beautiful and frivolous.
This is such a silly idea that I can't resist sharing it with you.
At my daughter's birthday sleep-over party a week ago, the girls assembled their own pizzas, using my home-made dough and a selection of interesting toppings.
In a last-minute burst of inspiration, I reached for the tube of edible cake glitter I'd bought to decorate Ellie's cupcakes.
The pizzas looked so festive and twinkly by lamplight, as did the girls, who had sparkles all over their faces and hair.
I'm frustrated that this daylight snap doesn't capture the flash of the finished product.
Edible cake glitter is expensive, but a little goes a long way.
By lamp- or candle-light, these pizzas look as if Tinkerbell has flitted from olive to olive, swishing her wand to share the twinkles.
