I am trying to do a cake for my husbands work and the fondant is black and looks like it has been sprayed with laquer. Does anyone know how to get this affect? I would use piping gel if I have to but it comes out looking to bumpy, I need something super smooth. Please help someone. Thanks,Mindy
You can brush shortening on it. That will give it a shiny look.
Try steaming it or painting with confectioners glaze
Paint your fondant with a mix of vodka and corn syrup. Apply a very thin coat so that it will dry. You can also add a sprinkle of pearl dust to the mix if you want.
I've done it before by brushing on melted shortening.
I think brushing it with vegatable shortening would be the best way Steaming it is to risky if your not experienced
