I want to make some cookies of burning candles so I want to have some of the wax look wet. Does anyone have an idea how I can do this???
Paint the wet looking part with a bit of piping gel.
light corn syrup will work too if you don't have piping gel.
Do you mean once the cookie is dry I should paint a little piping gel/corn syrup over the part I want to look wet? Won't it be sticky?
No, it will air dry. Just don't make it too thick and you will be fine. Sometimes I mix 50/50 corn syrup and lemon extract.
What about luster dust? One that has some shimmer to it, not matte.
On My fondant and gumpast for cakes ..I jas spritz on vodka and You can use a steamer like the cake boss does!
I got the Vodka idea from cake challenge on food network...the alcohol dissipates and there is so taste left! I have used a lg spray bottle ,,But the small ones in cosmetics or the travel aisle are a finer mist and do better.
Or if you dont have vodke clear vanilla does pretty much the same trick! for Shine!
Hope this helped...Good Luck

Christina - That is really interesting! I don't do cakes or fondant, but what a great thing to read about. I will have to pass that on to my daughter, the budding cake decorator. Thanks for telling us all!
I always brush my cookies with vodka and a little luster dust. It makes them shine and it drys quickly.
Gum arabic plus water and brush it on--Global Sugar Art has it for three bucks & change.
