2 parts Vodka or Lemon Extract Flavoring
1 part Light Corn Syrup
Mix vodka and light corn syrup until well combined. Then quickly use on your gum paste or fondant for lasting, fast drying shine.
The vodka evaporates quickly, you won’t want to mix the edible shine and leave sitting out for several minutes because the alcohol will evaporate from the bowl.
Note: Do a test run on a scrap of fondant or gum paste that is identical to your piece, to make sure that the coating adheres as it should. Every so often, the shine doesn’t adhere as it should, leaving it a little splotchy.
