AHiya. Lol bit of a random question here but can anyone recommend the best product to remove confectioners glaze from hard surfaces, eg glass? Last night I was up very late finishing a cake, was prob half asleep when I glazed a few details and didnt realise the iPad was un covered on other side of counter a couple of meters away. It has got a fine splatter all over the screen and I have been trying all morning to wipe it off with damp cloth and also window cleaner and no luck :( the screen now feels rough and looks like its covered in glitter :(.

Any tips greatly appreciated as my hubby will go mad when he finds out!

You can buy Glaze Cleaner from Squires Kitchen, you would usually use it for cleaning brushes after using the glaze. Having said that, I recall that all it is is isopropyl alcohol, which you may be able to get from a chemist if you can't get the Squires stuff.

AIs confectioner's glaze edible? I know this is a little off from the original question but I have a bottle and have been afraid to use it because it has such a strong chemical odor. It says food grade and I know that doesn't always mean edible!

Yes, it's edible--but in any quantity it doesn't taste very good.


As for removal, nail polish removal will take it off of glass--just don't get that on any plastic/vinyl parts.

Try vodka on a cloth.
