I have searched but cannot come up with the recipe. I have seen it on here a long time ago. I am making a fondant/gum paste record and want it to be shiny. I know about using steam, but I thought I would give this recipe a try...if I can ever find it!

Thanks everyone! thumbs_up.gif

I just use equal parts of vodka and corn syrup....Berniebeaver used it on his walleye fish and it looked great. I used on the following http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1419522.html

Do any of these recipes dry hard, or are they sticky? Thanks again!

If you want something to dry hard, confectioner's glaze will do it. It has to be bought though, there's no way to make it at home.

I have used egg white to paint on fondant for a shiny look as well. Eventually dries hard. I wish the cakes I did them to were posted. I'm kinda lazy about that, if I find the file I will post some.

Gum arabic (a powder) plus water is uber shiny--gleams kinda like patent leather in fact.

the corn syrup and vodka are a little sticky but not bad.
