Does anyone know if you can give fondant a shine.

I made a car this weekend and it really needed to have a lacquer shine to make it realistic, but wasnt sure how to do this or if you even could create that affect.

Any ideas is greatly appreciated.

Get a hand held clothes steamer, and steam it. Ever so slightly. It should look like patent leather afterward. Don't melt the details though.

Just simply apply a light coat of crisco onto the fondant. Rub in smoothly and evenly. this will make it shine. Check out my pink and black wedding cake in photos. The one that was copied from the Austrailian magazine cover. You will notice it mostly on the chocolate is where I used it on.
