got to make a formula one cake topper. I want it about 6" long. Probably make it from fondant with the body work in pastilage for sharp lines. Im looking for ideas on how to get a really high quality even gloss on the body work.

For gloss I have tried Pam, rubbing crisco on the fondant, edible varnish and piping gel. I've had the most success with crisco! However, I have heard that confectioners glaze works great. I just ordered some, so I will be trying it out soon.... Good luck!

Great tips! I am making my first car cake in a couple of months. I have also used Crisco for added shine, but I'm going to have to try the confectioner's glaze on the car for that super-shiny look.

decided to tint white fondant grey blue, then dust with silver dust and spray on lemon juice and silver dust to give a final layer. Finally spray on confectioners glaze. We will see!!
