Super shiny glaze for cookies

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I'm hoping some of you can help me with this problem. I am trying to make a super shiny glaze for an Italian cookie called Sospiri. I have tired several ways. Fondant icing, thinned royal icing, icing sugar glaze, but none of these retain their "wet" shiny glaze look when they are refrigerated. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any help or a recipe if you have one and are willing to share would be great. Thank you in advance.

Googled and this is just one of many sites that give the reader a recipe.

If it is a metallic shine you are searching for disco dust is always beautiful IMO.

Toba Garrett's Glace icing keeps its shine yet firms up enough to stack. Gel coloring tends to work better than paste. Paste coloring becomes splotchy, I assume because it doesn't incorporate as evenly.
