The effect I am after is a shiney plastic look.
Anyone got any ideas how to achieve this?
You can either wipe the fondant with a damp cloth or rub on a small amount of vegetable oil.
If you have a steamer, you can use that. It really works well!
Thanks for the very prompt replies. Going to have to be the oil one as I don't have a steamer.
I recently used a 1/2 vodka, 1/2 corn syrup mixture and brushed it on. It dries to the touch and stays shiny. It worked really well.
I've rubbed a little crisco on the fondant in the past it seems to work well
Well I've gone for the oil and it has worked well. Will upload some piccys later. Thanks guys
rubbing a little crisco is the best way and steaming too but if you dont have a steamer you can also use the steam from an iron just do it from some distance and slowly so you dont get the cake all wet.
