even though i'm weighing in on this a bit late:

arrowroot powder is a  nice soft alterntative to talc . . .

An eye for and eye leaves the whole world blind.

I have made batches of edible honey dusting powder in both vanilla honey and chocolate
honey flavors.  Also have made edible oils.  In these powders I experimented with
cornstarch, arrowroot powder (which is silky but doesn't taste as good as I wanted)
rice flour and a few other things which I can't remember right now but if you are
interested I will look at my shelves.

I actually came up with a mixture of the powders that the tasters liked best.

Also there is a lustre dust which is luminous and comes in various colors.  It is much much
finer than glitter.....silky smooth.....that would be a nice addition to this dust.

Yeah, not a good idea to use talc. That stuff can be very dangerous if inhaled.

Would home made honey dust clump together?  I really want some but it's so expensive.  I'm in the UK right now and all the places are offering them for around 20 pounds which would end up as 40 dollars for me.  Also, does anyone know if rice powder is easy to find in Scotland?  Could I pick it up at the local Tesco?

I found this recipe for honey dust at www.budget101.com
1 T of vanilla powder
1 cup of cornstarch
1 T of honey
     Mix then add 1 tablespoon of honey to the mixture.  Work it in the cornstarch and rub the clumps between your hands until it turns into very tiny particles.

I've never heard of honey powder, is that something real or do they mean vanilla extract by it?  I was thinking I'd get cornstarch and rice powder and find a nice combo of the two and make the honey dust.  And I also have tons of kinder egg containers so I was thinking about using them for storage but would that be a good idea?  I think maybe a pretty glass bottle would work but it wouldnt be airtight.  But do you guys think airtight is necessary?
