How Do You Make A Car Cake SHINE?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm making a car cake this weekend and I saw several here on CC and they were so shiney. A lot of the pictures didn't include any details on how it was done. Anybody have a suggestion? The cake will covered in white or red fondant.

Thanks,

They do this in the UK, don't know if you can get it where you are??

Just spray it over the cake from a distance and it will go shiny. Don't go over board otherwise you'll have orange streaks running down your fondant.

You can rub a little shortening over the entire cake when you are done and it will be shiny.

a mixture of 50% vodka and 50% clear corn syrup. brush it on, it will be sticky for a while but when it dry's it won't be sticky. I have used this many times. Good luck.

I do something similar to this, and it works pretty well.
