I'm a hobby and charity baker - i.e. not a pro - who makes lots of flowers, figures, etc. for my cakes. I'm intrigued by confectioner's glaze but have no idea when and where it makes sense to use it.

To those of you who do, please share some pointers on when and why you choose to use it? Thank you!

There's lots of uses for it, but the one I like best is to make a gumpaste purse out of black gumpaste (or black fondant seasoned with Tylose), then let dry and "paint" with confectioners glaze to make a patent leather look.
