Im sorry if this is already in here... thought Ive seen this before but cant find it. Maybe because Im tired and its late
I am doing some cupcakes from the HELLO CUPCAKE book.. I would like to know if there is anthing out there I can use to make something look "wet". I would prefer no taste, but will take what I can get
Also, Im having a hard time getting sprinkles to stick to jelly bellys... any ideas on this one
Thank you so so so much
Not sure what you mean by wet look. Guess I need to see an example. If you're talking about fondant, steam it with a handheld clothes steamer. Getting things to stick to a jelly belly can be achieved by brushing the jelly bean with piping gel first.
You might try using piping gel or confectionar's glaze--those both make things look shiny, which is kind of like "wet."
Confectioner's glaze will make things look wet, while drying enough not to be sticky. I've heard that large amounts of confectioner's glaze will make things taste bitter but I haven't eaten anything I've painted with it so I don't know for sure. I do know that it will dry with no odor, even though it has strong fumes while wet.
Thank you again for all your help. I will take a shot at this confectioners glaze and see how I do!!!
