Hello ~ I would greatly appreciate anyone knowing the recipe for the ''edible laquer'' to share it with me. I remember it as a short & quick recipe.
Thank you ~

Hi bobwonderbuns ~ Thanks for the link. They are out of stock and it's really quite pricey. I know I saw this recipe here at CC but can't find it again. Maybe it's called something other than ''laquer''??

Hi Walls1971 ~ It could have been, I'll have to take a look while I look again for the ''LACQUER'' (not laquer). It helps to spell correctly; I knew when I looked at it something was wrong with the spelling. Should have looked it up. LOL
Thanks ~ I'll go look now! icon_smile.gif

Hi Walls1971 ~ You are right, it is ''VARNISH''. Recipe submitted by: ''pinkbox''.
Now the embarrassing part. I had save this recipe in my ''recipe box''. Apparently I skimmed right over it in my haste to find it. DUH!!! LOL

Anyway, thanks much to both 'Walls1971' and 'bobwonderbuns' for replying to my plea for help!! icon_smile.gif

Confectioner's glaze is supposed to be for display pieces only - it smells like paint thinner.

I just use piping gel mixed with vodka (or lemon extract). It's shiny and dries without being sticky.

Hi MacsMom ~ OOOOOOOOOO This is even easier!! I'll have to give this a whirl too. What is the ratio of gel to vodka/extract? How is it applied?
Thanks!!!! icon_smile.gif

It's probably 50/50... I just add enough vodka to thin it enough to paint it on easily. I've used an artists paintbrush and those inexpensive foam brushes.
