How do you make fondant look shiney and wet? I'm going to make a dog cake and I want the eyes and nose to look wet. Is there something I can brush on?

Hi, you can use confectioner's glaze or there is a recipe in the Recipe Index called " Edible Varnich". You can use either one. icon_smile.gif

You may also apply some piping gel. I did that when I made my fish cake; it made the eye look glossy.

For my Shrek cake I painted piping gel on the eyes.

You can also just paint them with a little bit of water.
