I have seen Nicholas Lodge with a small steamer he uses to steam his flowers. Anyone knows where I could purchase one?

Thanks.

Question?? Why would you steam flowers? This one is new to me.

I have found that it gives the flowers a natural sheen; the colours look more vibrant and if you are applying petal dust, it sets the dust on to the gumpaste or sugar/flowerpaste. I have been using my laundry steamer (just like the one Buddy used last night on his cake, on the FoodNetwork Cake Challenge), but it's too cumbersome.

Hope this answers your question.

The steamers are used by business people traveling-kind of like a travel iron concept. Staples carries a lot of travel accessories and that's why they had them. Alan
