Sadly I am spending ALL my free time on here scouring the galleries for ideas and have seen 2 things that I dont understand how people do them.

1) Some peoples fondant is soooo shiny it almost looks pearlized. How on EARTH do you do that? It looks amazing!

2) I see people making iced cookies. There is like a base of perfectly smooth icing (Looks as though it had to go on liquid) and then they accent it on top with what I assume is royal icing. Can anyone tell me? I might try this for the holiday cookie exchange icon_smile.gif

You can steam the fondant or airbrush it with vodka or use pearl dust or pearl sheen airbrush color on it.

Most people use royal icing or glace on cookies. I use fondant on mine, with RI details or if I'm feeling lazy, without icon_biggrin.gif

when I want my fondant to have a satin look, I brush it with super pearl dust as soon as I roll it out.

I too use fondant as the base cover for my cookies, and then us RI for the details
