Hello there again, cake friends! I am working on a cello cake and would like to have a lacquered shine on the "wood" exterior, if possible. (I painted the fondant with gel colors) Can this be achieved with Confectioner's glaze? Will it remain shiny if I apply it to fondant? And, can I make it from scratch or is it only available commercially? I have a few recipes that I have found on the web, but wasn't sure if they are the same thing. Any suggestions?

I'm not familiar with scratch confectioners glaze. I think most people purchase it commercially. Yes, it will leave a shiny lacquered look. It may take a couple of coats for a super high gloss.
