I'm making some fondant figures of frogs for a cake this week, and when the fondant dries, I don't want it to get that matte, dry look. Any recommendations on how to stop that from happening, so my frog looks more . . . alive? icon_smile.gif

Rub crisco/shortening on them. It makes them not have that dry look. Or I read somewhere that veg. oil makes it VERY shiney. HTH

You could use vanilla but it has to be the clear version otherwise it changes the color.

Paint with confectioner's glaze and try to store under heated lamp or in a hot cupboard.
