I am doing a cake with a basketball sitting on a basketball court and need to make it with a shiney woodgrain look. How do I get the shiney effect?
Olleharr that's a great idea! I use steam for mine and sometimes I end up with water marks on the fondant. I'll try your idea!
are you spraying your mixture on or brushing it on?
Thanks Ollehar! I'll try that!
Ollehar, I just brushed the syrup/vodka mixture on some black fondant hydrangea blossoms for a cake due in a couple weeks and it's fabulous. They are like black patent leather flowers...sooo cool. Thanks so very much for sharing this great technique
Glad it worked for you! I learned of it from someone here on CC. And yes, I just brush it on.
Great info, thank you!!!
