I'm not sure but when you brush water or steam fondant, it will make it shiny.

It's a common thing. I actually like the look and give mine a crisco bath. That's something I learned from Sharon's DVD's.

Yeah, after a while it will go away. For me, I actually take a paper towel and dip it in crisco and then rub it all over the cake. Then I take a dry paper towel and remove the excess so it's evenly crisco'ed all over. Like I said, I got that from Sharon, but I really like the look of it.
