Have any of you ever tried steaming your fondant (yes, the type of steamer you use on your clothes).. on the cake to give it a shiny look? I saw this on cake boss and was wondering if anyone had success doing it? icon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

Just last weekend I purchased a clothes steamer from Walmart for aprox $20, believe it was a conair. I steamed black & white fondant for a cake & it gave a nice shine - the black looked like patten leather. I also got the idea from cake boss. Was very happy with the outcome! Try & let me know how you make out. Good luck!

I use a steamer all the time for different cake projects. It also set the petal dust or luster dust on your gumpaste flowers... (no dust falling onto cake) and gives them such a natural finish. Caution. Do not hold it close to the cake... if it spits water, your cake will have spots.

Thanks, I can't wait to try it. I knew I would get an answer here. Thanks for the caution too, would not have thought about the water spots. I will post how it comes out..... icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif
