Hi every one,

I have a Bourjois Nail polish cake coming up in few days. I wan it to look as realistic as possible.

I just can't think of and idea to give the fondant a glassy shine? I thought of brushing the cake with piping jel!! will it work? or is it going to look so sloppy and amateur?

You could also steam it.

i'd go w/ the 50/50 vodka & light corn syrup, unfortunately when you steam the fondant it only looks shiny for a while. i'd also use some edible glitter to give it a shine.

I read someone the other week in here say they used an iron to steam the fondant and it stayed shiny...maybe search the forums for that

This sounds like a great tip, does it dry like when you paint with gel colors? Or does it stay sticky?

The 50/50 vodka & corn syrup does dry but it takes an hour or so.

Thank you all.. but don't you think that using the piping jel instead of the corn syrup will give the same effect? has any one tryed it?
