How do you all get your fondant/gumpaste figures so shiny? I am talking about ones that look slick, like they have been varnished or polished or something. Sounds stupid, but I didn't know how to describe it.

Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

I did it once (if I get what you're saying) ... I just got a brush and brushed piping gel all over the cake when it was done. It was sticky as all get out, but it stayed shiny.

Steaming it also works.

luster dust,confectioner spray and edible glaze all help.You get them from your local cake shop.You will get them in variety of colors to match your cake.For airbrush,I bought this one called shimmer spray made by lucks.It is more expensive than regular airbrush color but it makes your finished work shiny and silky.
