hi ive to make the red car from cars walt disney any ideas on how to make the fondant really shinny and smooth ive used confectionary glaze before for things but its not that shinny????
You can try steaming it with one of those handheld clothes steamers. In a pinch, you can try a tea kettle's steam. From what I hear, be careful....you don't want to leave the steam in any one spot for too long or your fondant will melt. Good luck and please post pics!
Attending a class of topsy turvy cakes the teacher used Pam spray about 6-7" from the cake (the fondant was gold matte). Then she used a sponge and rubbed it (the Pam sprayed) all over. You can test this first in a piece of the red fondant. HTH.
I give my fondant-covered cakes a quick, light steam with a handheld clothes steamer just to clean it up. When I want an entire fondant-covered cake to be shiny, I steam it in coats until it reaches the desired result. When I want just a figure or piece to be shiny, I paint it with a thin layer of piping gel.
