Some of use saw Buddy on Cake Boss using a steamer to achieve a shiny finish. Another trick I came across accidentally was brushing the fondant with liquor. I used Cointreau for real shine, Kahlua when I need more of a brown for a wine box. and tequila for less shine to clean up any confectionery sugar from rolling. Save the wine for drinking....

Great tips - lol @ *save the wine for drinking*
Thanks for this great tip!
You can use vodka too if you want it to dry without leaving a flavor behind.
If you ever need a really glossy shine (think patent leather), confectioner's glaze will do it.
