Hey, i am sure i seen a post recently but i cant seem to find it.
I am looking for tips on how to make a cake have a shiny look to it, i've tried the shortening but it never works, just seeps in and goes matt again.
Try using a steamer. It's really easy and it leaves a very nice shine. Here's a link to my latest cake, and my 1st time using a steamer!
I was going to suggest using a steamer, but then came back after surfing the net for you and saw the post. However, I found something very interesting online, so go to: http://thesugarlane.com/2008/07/17/making-your-fondant-look-shiny/
i dont have a steamer so what i use is a damp paint brush.
I use the steamer, got mine at walmart noy a bad price. But will have to try the pam spray. thanks for the ideal
i do like the pam spray idea. would still love to get a steamer though
Will the Pam Spray give the fondant a different taste? Just a pondering thought>>
Would the pam spray leave a buttery residue?? You know like if you spray too much in your pan it's super buttery....could that happen to the outside of your cake if you spray too much???
I have heard if you dont have a steamer to use an iron that has steaming capabilities and just hold it up so the steam is directed at the item needing the steam.....HTH
Original spray Pam does not alter the taste of the fondant at all. You don't use the butter-flavored Pam. You spray a very light spray and then use a soft paintbrush to even it all out. Using a paintbrush is important.
