Everclear substitute?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

I want to have something on hand to deal with water spots that appear on fondant and I read that Everclear works well with a light dusting of cornstarch BUT in Canada (B.C. to be exact) Everclear can only be purchased for industrial or medical purposes and with a permit.

What else can I use to "clean up" water spots from fondant?

Thanks to you all!
Rhea

I heard smirnoff vodka.

You basically need a clear, edible alcohol ... something that will evaporate quickly without discoloring your work. People use Everclear specifically because it's clear and has such a high percentage of alcohol. But you can use vodka or lemon extract. Hope that helps!

Try what I do. Press your finger into some powdered sugar and rub the slightest amount of it over the shiny spot. Pouf, it disappears.

Look for 151 proof rum, it might not be white but it sure has the higher alcohol level.

I use the cheapest vodka avavilable, typically Aristocrat. Works just as good (in my opinion)

Does anyone know if you can buy lemon extract with alcohol in the UK?
