    I'd like to see any small mammal daring to eat oats of my door step with my big fat tomcat's lurking by the cat flap! :grin:
    But yes, ours will be glitter free, as my daughter also panicked last year over :rudolf: health!

    Was just going to say what other posters have already mentioned.

    If you have already made this with the cheap non-edible glitter either throw it away and remake with edible glitter or sugar with a few drops of food colouring in, or only sprinkle this on, for example, your front step, and sweep it up as soon as the children have gone to bed.

    There have been quite a few reports of birds and small animals being killed by eating the glitter from reindeer food, and let's face it, the magical experience would be somewhat ruined by a dead robin and mouse on your front path Christmas day morning!!!!!!!!!;)
  • my youngest's nursery gave us some yesterday, it was oats with little edible cake decorations in, my son wanted to eat it himself though lmao
    :cool:minds is willing , soul remains, this woman cannot be saved :cool:

    Thanks for the reply, I hadnt thought about the birds getting it as I was going to put it on our step and sweep it up, the recipes I found didn't mention edible glitter but I have some left from Halloween cakes so I think I will throw it away and make more that way our birds and squirrel can tuck in, saves me having to clean it up and will look more convincing in the morning. I'm a newbie to reindeer food, will edit my post now.:o
  • Hi

    Just a suggestion but you could do it with actual cheap bird food then the bird's get a nice xmas treat too?

  • Wow, the reindeer are lucky these days! We used to just leave a carrot when I was little :D
    If I could cheat, I'd skip to the end and decide if it's worth going through with
    :D

    Proper 'edible glitter' is quite expensive from cake decorating suppliers but Asda sell a tub of pink sugar crystals, in the Home Baking Section, for approx. 65p. Also, it is really easy to mix normal sugar with a couple of drops of food colouring, red or green work best, to create a similar effect.
