How do you make your fondant shiney? I have heard to spray it with Pam, but it doenst dry and stays greasy, same thing with painting on a little oil. What do you do?
Hi, a top tip from Sugarshack is to rub some shortening with a kitchen paper.
I also use confectioner's glaze for the accents for cakes, like Texas_Rose has done. But wouldn't use it on a whole cake.
I just paint on water. It dries but stays shiny
If you just want a sheen I just spray some Pam or rub crisco on it and lightly rub with a paper towel but eventually this will be absorbed back into the fondant. But, if you want a really glossy finish like I just did for a wine bottle on a cake I just took some light corn syrup and diluted it with a little water and brushed it on the fondant. Works like a charm!HTH!
I used piping gel.. Just brush it on thin and it dries pretty good with a nice shine.
Thanks for all the tips! I tried water, but the fondant got all sticky. I will try some of these other ideas too!!
I use pipng gel
There's a recipe for "edible varnish" in the recipe section here.
