How to make your fondant shiny as well as other fondant pieces……..

1 Nov

I get lots of questions on how to make a fondant piece such as a bow or other design that will be added to a cake or even a figurine, appear shiny…..so I wanted to share what I use to make my pieces shiny since there are so many who are interested in this info…….I have used the method of boiling water in a pot on the stove and hold my fondant piece, bow, flower and such over the steam for a few seconds to add a nice shine to my pieces and this does work great for sugar flowers and other small fondant pieces.

I have also used spray pam which I spray the pan on my fondant and I give it time to soak in a bit then wipe it evenly with a papertowel to get an even look on my cakes, and on my pieces too. Now there are other products on the market that work great at adding a shine to your fondant work with great results and I wanted to share this info with those of you who ask me all the time how to make their fondant cakes and creations shiny……Below are links and info on the lastest products that I am using to accomplish this.

I use is a product called confectioners glaze which comes in a bottle and can be applied with a paintbrush, and now they also have an edible glaze in a spray can by PME which is SOO nice to use and very simple to apply especially on my figurines, fondant covered cakes as well as any other pieces you may want a shine on!

Here are links for you to find these products that I am talking about……..

PME Edible Spray Glaze http://www.globalsugarart.com/cat.php?cid=815&s&name=PME+SUGARCRAFT%2FPME+Luster+Sprays
This spray is great since I can just spray and even layer on a fondant covered cake that I want to be shiny, I use it on my figures and other fondant work that I need to be shiny.

Confectioners Glaze which is edible it comes in a bottle and is applied with a paintbrush…..This product is very sticky so it is a great idea to also purchase the thinner that they have available too…..the confectioners glaze leaves a beautiful shine on your fondant pieces as well as sugar flowers and many other things! http://www.jenniferdontz.com/Confectioners-Glaze_p_435.html   
Here is another link for Global sugar art which also sells the confectioners glaze and thinner http://www.globalsugarart.com/search.php?q=confectioners+glaze
