I've just joined as a celebration/novelty cake maker. I have a commission for an Aston Martin car and looking for the best idea to get a glass like sheen on it. I know you can use vodka or vegetable oil and glycerin perhaps and there are some sprays. Any hints or tips would be much appreciated

For the most uniform, authentic shine, I suggest you use a commercial cake glaze, the spray would probably work best for a car. I've made it by mixing corn syrup and vodka, but it is very hard to get the two evenly mixed and the end results tends to be spotty. Also, it takes a long time to dry. Glaze is much more effective and dry well.
