I am currently working on a cake for next Friday. I have covered the cake board in blue fondant and want the board to represent ice. I have a small bottle of confectioners glaze but have never used it before. Can I dilute the glaze with a little everclear and brush it onto the fondant to give it shine? If so, how long does it take it to dry? Does it dry hard or sticky?
Thanks for your help!
You can use it undiluted to give a strong shine or dilute it with confectioners glaze thinners, I have never used everclear so I don't know if it would work. Use it diluted on leaves for a shine & a stronger solution was used on the floor of my graduate girl in my photo's. It works very well. I think you could also use piping gel. Confectioners glaze dries very quickly, the piping gel will take a little longer.
Thanks! I don't have any of the thinner, so tomorrow I'll try mixing a little of the glaze with a little everclear and try it on a scrap piece of fondant to see what happens. I've used piping gel before, but it does take awhile to dry. Thanks again.
