I am making a chocolate bow for a cake and now that I have dried my pieces they look very dull. I tried brushing on some lustre dust on one but it did not work so is there a way to put a sheen on chocolate SI fondant?
Not very experienced in dusts etc. so would really appreciate some help on how to achieve a shiny bow.

Try steaming it. If the bow isn't attached to your cake yet then boil some water and the steam will make the bow shiny.

You can also brush it with a little luster dust and vodka mixed together.

I spray vodka from a spray bottle and it has always worked perfectly for me!
