Hi! I know I'm new here, but I have been a lurker for a while and love reading all your helpful hints.... I am driving myself crazy with this -- how long does the shine last for? I have tried EVERYTHING recommended here (straight vodka, vodka mixed with corn syrup, vodka with piping gel, spray bottle water, steam from iron, steam from iron then rapid cooling with a fan) and everything evaporates or dries within the hour and the shine is gone.

The only thing that worked overnight for me is spraying Pam.

Please help!

Am I misunderstanding or are these just temporary fixes that will disappear shortly after application?

Yes it does ...I just guessed the ratios I used but I'm guessing less corn syrup is better..

canola oil spray is what I use. I apply it with a brush.

I just made a cake yesterday with black fondant and a black rose. I used Pam to make it shiny.

Equal parts corn syrup and clear alcohol work great!  Let it dry, and it won't even be tacky.  You can even add additional layers for additional shine.  AND, the shine LASTS (unlike steaming or whites).

I always wondered how to make fondant shiny..
So 50/50 corn syrup n vodka
Or steaming
Who takes less time in applying and who lasts longer for like an overnight ?

This was done with vodka and corn syrup.  It's wonderful!  (It's an italian evil eye).
