Sometimes when I make a cake that is covered in fondant - and has little details glued to it - I tend to get a greasy/shiny look around where i've glued the little pieces (ex. purse - handle - zipper, etc..) - and if the water touches other parts of the fondant.. same shiny disaster icon_sad.gif
How can I avoid this from happening, and how can I take the greasy/shiny look off of the cake?

I can see it more when I use black or brown fondant....

Thanks so much!

Does the water completely dry? If not, dust it with either powdered sugar or cocoa, depending on the color of the fondant. That should asborb the moisture and give it the matte look you want.

Thank you! It has dried now..
Maybe I'll try the powdered sugar tonight!
