The effect I am after is a shiney plastic look.
Anyone got any ideas how to achieve this?
I have heard of people using a steamer to make the fondant shiny. You could also just rub a bit of shortening onto the fondant to get a shiny look. Good Luck!!
Two ways I know of:
Brush on clear piping gel....TONS of shine but it does stay tacky...I did this on my fish and looked awesome, just don't touch it.
I have read that spraying Pam on it and then brushing it in works like a charm? It's all over the internet, but I've never tried this.
There are edible Pearl Sprays you can buy for $10, www . countrykitchensa . com has it. That would be pretty.
I use a steamer, but it does not end up super shiny, just smoother... HTH!
