2 parts Vodka or Lemon Extract Flavoring
1 part Light Corn Syrup
***This is SO easy. Combine two parts vodka to one part corn syrup–mix until well combined. Then quickly use on your gum paste or fondant for lasting, fast drying shine. **I used to use a 50/50 mix, and recently changed after complaints of it being slightly tacky to the touch. Now, this is the ratio that I always use. Since the vodka evaporates so 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.
*****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. In my wine bottle video, I discuss this– Every so often, the shine doesn’t adhere as it should, leaving it a little splotchy. So, always do a test patch in a discrete place first!
