If it's full strength confectioner's glaze, I wouldn't use too much of it on anything that will be eaten--it's kind of bittter.

You can thin it with a clear alcohol (Everclear, gin, or vodka) so that it's 50/50. It dries faster, isn't as bitter, and is still shiney. Still, large quantities of it change the flavor of the fondant.

What is the confectioner's varnish used for?
