How to Make a Glow Party Cake 

Prepare favorite cake flavor. Chill cake. Apply crumb coat of vanilla or chocolate buttercream to cake. Place cake in freezer to harden crumb coat icing about 30 mins.

Prepare black icing:

1 step coloring

1. Use chocolate buttercream in the black food coloring gel until you reach your desire color. This will be 3 to 4 drops.

Prepare black icing:

2 step coloring

  1. Use any other flavored buttercream. Dye it with chocolate brown gel coloring 2-3 drops. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Add black gel food coloring 3-4 drops.

Do not try to color white icing black. Black plus white = gray.

Let the icing beat on high speed until fluffy (about 3-5 mins).

Remove cake from freezer and ice with the now black buttercream.

Prepare your splatter station!

Cover the entire area. Things are going to get a little messy.

Using a TINY bit of the rolkum powder add a small amount of lemon extract and mix until you have a loose paste consistency (think Elmers glue consistency).

Using a paint brush splatter the color on the cake. Pull out your black light and let the party begin!

Allow icing to crust over and dry (about 15 mins). Use a white Viva paper towel (no other paper towel will work) to smooth out the icing.

Place the paper towel over the side and or top of the cake and lightly smooth the icing with your hands.
