After I roll out my bow in powdered sugar, you can see it on the bow. How do you make it look nice & shiny?
I use corn syrup and vodka. 50/50 mixture. I usually use 1 tbsp of each. Mix it up and then use a paintbrush (new one, or one that is only for your cakes) and brush it on. It makes it look great!!
ill hve to try that corn syrup method..ive always just used steam to make my bows shiney..i have a cheap portable steamer i bought at walmart that i use for my fondant
Thanks, I don't have a steamer, I'll try the corn syrup/vodka method!
I just used vodka and it works great. I made a soccer ball cake look shiny and new the same way. The liquid evaporates off; it dries and isn't sticky at all.
I did this bow the same way. Although the pic I used doesn't do the glossiness of the bow too much justice.
A light airbrush spray of vodka or gin would be perfect for this.
just so you know, using the corn syrup and vodka, it dries nicely. Not sticky. And it will look like it is still wet. I have also used the steamer method.
