When I took a class with Bronwen last week, people kept talking about spraying the cake with vodka when they were done. Why would they do that?

I've seen that recommended to get rid of PS residue and heard that it also leaves a short-term shine on the fondant. Not an issue for me--I roll on vinyl with a swipe of Crisco (no residue, plenty of shine).

I ALWAYS have PS residue all over my cakes...I might try that then. That was my guess icon_wink.gif

Some people mix Luster Dusts or Pearl Dust with Vodka and spray it on their cakes. I think it works better with an air gun... To get powdered sugar off of fondant just rub with a little shortening, it will be absorbed, and the shine will go away in a few hours...

HTH,

Wow...that is so weird... icon_confused.gif It cut off half of what I wrote... I was also saying that I think it works better with an air gun... And that you can get rid of powdered sugar on fondant by just rubbing it gently with a small amount of shortening... It will absorb into the cake and the "shiny" will go away within a few hours...

Hope this one makes it...lol icon_rolleyes.gif
